Last week we subjected our Energy Cubes to heat and light — and we measured how well they performed at keeping heat in while simultaneously admitting light. Today the students presented findings from last week’s Energy Cube performance testing.
The discussed their design process, results, analysis, and interpretations. They explained what they think they did well, and what they would improve upon for the next time.
I made a Prezi slide show of pictures for today’s presentations. You can click on the title slide (to the right) to view the Prezi, of view the images below to get a sense of the performance testing and the process of building the Energy Cube models.
I conducted the lighting test, although there aren’t any photos of that because I had my hands full. Michael O’Flaherty conducted the thermal test, as you can see near the end of the Prezi slide set, or in the small gallery below.
