Unit 7.3: “Cooling Hot Dogs”: Moving Thermal EnergyIn this unit, students conduct investigations and develop evidence-based models of thermal energy transfer as part of designing a system to cool an outdoor dog crate. The system models are used in combination with engineering practices to design, test, and improve a physical model of a “pet crate” that will keep a dog cool during hot summer days.
Unit Challenge Question: How can scientific principles be used to design, construct, and test a device to keep a dog crate from overheating during hot days?
