Objective: The experimental objective of this lab is to design and build a container that minimizes the heat lost by an egg placed inside. The heat loss will be measured by recording the temperature of the surface of the egg. Furthermore, you will learn about heat as a form of energy (thermal energy) and how it is transferred. We will also investigate the principles of minimal design. Your design will be entered in a competition against the other containers in your section. The team with the lowest Minimal Design Ratio (MDR) will be declared the winner.
