Insulating a House - 4th Form Physics

The 4th Form Physicists have been learning about heat transfer and how heat loss can be reduced by using insulation. As part of this work, the students insulated a drawing of a house using a variety of textiles. This included curtains, carpeting, loft insulation, draught excluders around the door and cavity wall insulation.

The group had a lot of fun with this hands-on approach to learning and it really helped their understanding. A display was created to showcase this excellent work.
