Cup Insulator Design Challenge

Cup Insulator Design Challenge

Group members: Meagan and Monica


The objective is to make an insulator for the cup and keep the drink in the cup hot as long as possible and the temperature doesn’t drop fast.



First, we read the question and knew what was going on. Then we started on what our design should look like. We shared out our thinking and design together and thought which one would be better to make. We drew the design on the Brainstorm sheet and wrote the steps of how to do the design. So we made a prototype with paper and thought what kind of materials should we use.


Then, we gathered the materials which are foam, Velcro, tin foil (with a sticky side), and potato plastic wrapper. We started cutting the shapes out and gluing the shapes together into a certain cup shape.


Next, we tested the insulator if it fits the cup and tested if it is waterproof and make sure that there was a hole to drink from.


In the end, my partner, Monica, downloaded a app called “Logger Pro” So we could test how many degrees we have lost in 10 minutes. The teacher poured the hot water into the cup with the insulator on the cup. We lost 12 degrees.

Welcome to Your New Blog!

When you blog you create posts and posts are categorised according to your subject. Some categories have already been set up for you. If you need more categories you can add them as needed. It’s important that your posts have the following:

  • An engaging title – this should not include the name of the subject since this is referenced in the category.
  • Body – this is where you share your learning. This can include text, images, embedded videos from Dragons’ Tube or elsewhere. You should always consider how your post looks to your audience. Is it engaging? Do they want to keep reading?
  • Category – select one that has been set for you or add a new category. Posts can have more than one category e.g. Humanities and Myself as a Learner
