Solar Cooker


In this module, students investigate thermal energy transfer between water samples of different volumes and temperatures. To start, students predict the results of mixing water samples of different temperatures. They then test their predictions through experimental measurement of the temperatures of the mixtures as they reach thermal equilibrium. Lastly, students explain their results by applying their understanding of thermal energy transfer. They also design, test and a solar cooker.

Disciplinary Core Idea:
PS3: Energy

Performance Expectation(s):
MS-PS3-3. Apply scientific principles to design, construct, and test a device that either minimizes or maximizes thermal energy transfer.
MS-PS3-4. Plan an investigation to determine the relationships among the energy transferred, the type of matter, the mass, and the change in the average kinetic energy of the particles as measured by the temperature of the sample.
