Today at science class, we did an expirement about insulators. All of us were given partners and we were told to use any materials we could bring in to keep a bottle full of hot water hot in an ice bath. The layers we put on our bottle had to fit inside a gallon sized plastic bag. I thought it was an almost impossible task! My partner brought some materials from home and we used some of the stuff Mr. Solarz had kindly set out for our use. Of course, he bought everything from garage sales. Anyway, our insulators did a fair job. The top temp on the above graph did not change much, indicating that we had kept the bottle warm. We could have stuffed the bag full of materials like scraps of paper and felt like some groups did. Although we didn't do that, we did the steps right. This was a first for me. I normally found that very hard.
