Team (no order):
  • Derrick
  • Yashu - lead
  • Jasmine

Coach:
  • Hugh

Results so far:
Nov., 2
  • Thermo Basics: Conduction, Convection, Radiation
  • Radiation reduced using r* - great solution material found
  • Convection is handled by using a lid to reduce air currents
  • Conduction is handled using insulators like foam and fiberglass
Nov., 9
  • A device was constructed using certain substances. Temperatures were measured over time.
  • The rules were reviewed - foam and fiberglass cannot be used.
