Gilman Middle School students learn about Thermal Energy
THERMAL ENERGY EXPERIMENTATION -- Gilman Middle School students have been immersed in learning about various forms of insulation, creating models of homes. They can easily talk about kinetic energy, radiation, convection and conduction, obviously being very familiar with the terms and the definitions. Above, from left, Dylan Cantin, Kerry Wong, Andrea Elie and Destinee Bell prepare to glue the sheets of foam before inserting them in the cardboard structures. Carl Johnson (right), science teacher, models the correct way to glue the sheets of foam, preventing gaps where heat could escape. Testing which type of insulation (cotton, wood chips, cellulose or rigid foam) holds the heat longer, students are using a digital thermometer on a computer to track data. Pouring hot water (85 degrees Celsius) in a glass jar, they record the time required to cool the water to room temperature (20 degrees Celsius). All of the students have been invested in this project and understand what they are doing and how it connects to the Next Generation Science Standards.
