This activity is meant to be used as a STEM/STEAM design challenge as part of our larger Bootcamp Bundle. Students receive daily letters from “The General” in order to complete missions as part of their end of year review. The following paper contains a design challenge given for students to use their creativity and knowledge of heat transfer in order to design new uniforms for the troops. Students must consider factors such as weather conditions, materials and functionality. Assignment 2 contains a report regarding thermal heat scans includes a letter for students and then 3 scenarios about the heat signatures of different scans of the enemy camp. Students are asked to use their knowledge of heat transfer in order to postulate what is happening in the enemy camp.
Use the following papers as group activities or as individual assignments/projects.
The Insulator Design Challenge does not contain an answer key due to the nature of the assignment. Assignment 2, the thermal scan assignment does include an answer key following the handout.
