We recently received a free science kit from Physics Quest. It came with a comic book/ instruction manual and 4 experiments. The first activity, “Meltdown,” answers the question, “How do different metals conduct heat?” Emily inserted copper, aluminum, and steel wires into Hershey’s Kisses, taped the wires onto the sides of a glass, and filled the glass with hot wire. Then she observed which of the metals conducted heat well enough to melt the chocolate.
This was a fun and easy experiment. Try it yourself to find out which metal is the best conductor!
