How do you keep liquid the warmest for the longest amount of time?
In our science lessons, we have been learning about thermal insulators and thermal conductors. Using our knowledge of thermal insulators, we were challenged to design and add materials to a beaker to keep it warm for the longest amount of time. We created a whole range of designs using layers of materials which we thought would be the best insulators.
