A science experiment which investigates which material is the best insulator of heat.
Heat passes through some materials easily. These materials are called ‘thermal conductors’. Heat does not pass through other materials as easily. These materials are called ‘thermal insulators’. Thermal insulators are good at keeping hot things hot and cold things cold.
This Energy experiment allows students to investigate if bubble wrap, paper towel, or aluminum foil is the best insulator of heat.
