Study thermal conductivity by comparing the rates of heat transfer for the following metals: aluminum, carbon steel, copper, brass, and nickel alloy stainless steel. This kit includes five 10cm metal rods, a hand-held clamp, and candle. Complete instructions include tips for teaching young children about thermal conductivity.
The following questions might help you come up with a good science fair project: Which metals conduct heat the best? How might they be used most effectively? (Look for everyday examples.)
Note: This kit may contains traces of lead. Skin contact with lead is not dangerous; however, to avoid potential digestion, always wash hands after handling.
