PROJECT: SAVE THE WHTER WARM 

 

 

Alfred, Jack cup  Baseline   5 min  10 min  Total lost  
control  92.6’c  80.1’c  71.7’c  20.9’c 
prototype  83.3’c  74.7’c  72.7’c  11.4 

 

We did save that much heat because we had good material all around the cup and that was Eva foam. I think Eva foam works good because it is a good and thick material and the material, we just on the top was good because it is also a thick material that kept warm inside of the cup. 

 

So, we were trying to keep the coffee hot. The way we would be able to keep it warm was to build like a jacket. I and Jake made it by about 10’c and we made a really easy design easy is good. 

 

We solved this problem by thinking where the most heat is coming out and that was the top. The next step was to build something around the cup because we felt like it is not easy to get out heat from the bottom of the cup. So, we connected the top and the thing around so that you can pull off the top of the cup and it will still be connected to the cup.  

 

Yes, the product did work well because I think we fixated the biggest problem that was to not let the warmth get out of the top, and then we did some extra with the thing around it. 

 

What are you proud of? 

How well we did, and we made it bay 10’c and I think we did a good job. 

 

 

What would you do differently? 

Maeby try to but something in the bottom and see if that would make any difference. 

 

I was not able to get photos of it but my partner Jack should have some.
