The Heat Transfer Project contains two activities for with cross-curricular links to Science asking Year 9 students to investigate materials that are most suitable for fast food packaging, and learn more about how a vacuum flask works.

The project consists of two main activities:

  • Hot Potatoes! A Science based activity where students make predictions, carry out an experiment, analyse results and make conclusions about which materials are most suitable for fast food packaging and apply this information to a design task.
  • How do we keep hot things hot? A D&T based activity where students learn more about how a vacuum flask works, analyse products by completing a user trip and apply this information to a design task.

The project is planned over two two-hour lessons and is most suitable for students who have already had an introduction to Heat Transfer theory through their Science lessons. Ideal for Y9 students as a stepping stone between their introduction to Heat Transfer at KS3, and their recap of Heat Transfer for their GCSE. It links into GCSE Product Design, covering topics such as product analysis, designing and packaging.
