My science fair project: Do mints really cool things down?
By: Regina Nerlien

Hypothesis:
I predict that the cooling effect of mint is just a sensation because things with mints on it have ice crystals and frost to make it seem colder
Materials :
Thermometer
Mints
2 containers of room temp. water
Pen and paper to collect data
Procedure :
Get the containers of room temp. water and take the temp. with the thermometer and record the initial temperature
Take one container of water and place a mint inside of it.Wait for 5 minuets and take the temp. then you would record temp.
Wait for 10 minuets to pass by and take the temperature.Record this
When 15 minuets comes around take the temperature of the water
20 minuets will come and take the temperature of the water then you will analyze all the data you recorded
Solution
Problem:
Is the cooling effect of mints just a sensation or does the temperature actually drop?
independent variable: The independent variable in my experiment is the water.One of them are going to get mints added to it
dependent variable: The dependent variable in my project is the temperature of the water after and before i put the mints
Constants:
the constants are
the containers that
are holding the water,
the amount of mints used,
the temperature of the water
The solution is that mints don't cool things down. the initial temperature of the water was 68 degrees Fahrenheit and it stayed that way.
