Josh's Science Project

Josh had his school Science Fair in February. Since he is in Honors Science he is required to go to the District Science Fair. Then he was selected to go on to the Regional Science Fair at BYU last week. Though he wasn't selected to go on to State he had a great project. He tested the thermal qualities of fabrics for winter campouts. Being a scout in Utah takes him on many cold/freezing campouts. So, it was only natural for him to chose this project. He selected 5 fabrics and tested them by heating a potato in the microwave. Then he wrapped each potato in the fabric and took the temperature of the potato with a thermal cuppler every 15 mins. It was determined that Thinsulate held the warmest temp for the longest period of time. We are proud of Josh.
