A. Explain the problem you were trying to solve
I am trying to make a project that can keep the energy in the cup.
B. Explain your process for solving this problem. (Write about how you used the engineering and design process)
We decide to put fabric around the cup, and another one on the top, so the energy won’t get out.
C. CER – To practice writing a CER I want you to make one regarding the Cup Insulator
C – Make a CLAIM which is a statement of truth that you learned from your data
E – Provide EVIDENCE to back up that CLAIM. Go back to your data and gather two pieces of EVIDENCE to support the CLAIM
R – Write a scientific REASONING for why your CLAIM happened
I learned that putting fabric around does work, but it’s not good enough to use in real life. It’s not good enough is because from the event it was only 7 celcius lower than a cup with out fabric. It didn’t really work well because it was only fabric, and if I want to keep it nice, I might need to use metal, but we don’t have enough fabric and time, so I think that’s why it didn’t work well.
D. Respond to at least 2 of the following to complete your blog
– What are you proud of?
– What would you do differently?
Make it bigger and thicker
– What was the hardest thing about this project?
When finishing the project we found out the outside doesn’t look good, but we fixed it at last.
– What are some limitations your group experienced in this design challenge?
