Model House. Your group must build a model of your house with windows (minimum of 3) and doors (minimum of 2) included as outlined in your sketch. Your group must follow the guidelines below when building your model. Note: Your model needs to be constructed using multiple panels (walls, roof) of cardboard. You cannot simply obtain a box and call it your house. :)
You model needs to be built from the following materials ONLY;
- sticky tape
- glue (hot glue guns, glue sticks)
- icy-pole sticks.
- plastic film (Glad Wrap, etc...) - for window coverings
You must insulate the inside of your house where your group identifies possible heat (thermal) energy loss. What you choose to insulate your house is up to your group.
Your model must be approximately 30cm x 30cm x 30cm.
Hypothesis. Prior to beginning testing and data collection, each member of your group is required to answer the following two questions.
- Where do you think the most heat loss is going to come from (door/window, roof, wall cracks, other) your model?
- Do you think there will still be heat loss after you renovate your model?
Data Set 1. Once your model has been constructed, your group must collect the following data (information). Note: We will be using a heat lamp inside your house, which will sit for 2 minutes, to generate warmth/heat in your model.
