Ice Box

What you’ll learn: this is a fun activity for children who like to be creative with their experiments. They will learn about insulation as they try to keep their ice cube nice and cool. The objective is to keep the ice cube “alive” for as long as possible; this can be done alone or as a contest between multiple children.

 

What you’ll need: be innovative! Any and all materials are allowed in this experiment. The children can experiment using trial and error or apply their knowledge of different materials to help build their icebox. Once the iceboxes are built, place one ice cube inside and seal it in. Check on the ice every half hour to view how fast or slow the ice melts.

 

After the ice has melted: once all of the ice cubes have melted have the children describe the materials that they picked out and explain why they had chosen them. Also have them explain their building process and discuss their choice of structure.

Through outreach and professional development activities, research, partnerships, thought leadership and online initiatives, we work with industry and academia to educate on the value of diversity for innovation, to inspire women to thrive and to celebrate the contributions of women in science and engineering.
