STEM Club Activity: Keeping It Cool
This resource will introduce ideas about keeping materials and tools cool whilst in space, and try to encourage the students to apply these ideas during a hands on activity.
The students work in groups to design, make, test and evaluate an appropriate heatshield to protect a square of chocolate from a heat source. In this instance the chocolate represents the payload of important equipment and tools on the solar orbiter and the heat source represents the Sun.
