In this workshop, students will carry out a series of hands-on activities to enhance their learning on heat gain or loss by an object. By applying the concepts of on heat energy and temperature, students will work in groups to tackle the design challenge of using different materials and ways of keeping homes cool.


  1. Recognise that there are good and poor conductors of heat.
  2. Relate change in temperature of an object to the gain or loss of heat by the object.
  3. Measure temperature using a thermometer.
  4. Investigate the effect of conductors and insulators to build a cool house.
