Let’s Crank Up the Heat

6th grade students research thermal energy to solve real-world problems.

In 6th grade science, students were trying to put their understanding of thermal energy into solving real-world problems. Some students were trying to make thermal grills to make cookies from the heat of the sun. Others like Stephanie Ramos (Gr. 6) were in the ice carving group. “We’re basically making an ice block to transport, but it has to not be able to melt.” Jack Mullen (Gr. 6) loved his assignment. “I’m in the hot tub group and we’re trying to find a way to make thermal energy heat up, so we can make the hot tub actually hot.”
