What type of winter wear material provides the best insulation: wool, fleece, nylon or cotton? Prior Knowledge and Observations Question Hypothesis Methods Data: Data Analysis Conclusion Reflections What fabric is best for keeping my ears warm?
by: Simon, Alvin and Theodore 12.14.10 Grades:
presentation rubric I observed that various winter hats insulat my head to varying degrees. I wouildl ike to test the insulating factor of wool, polar fleece and cotton knit. Which hat best limits the decrease in ear temperature when exposed to a cold winter day? The wool hat will provide the best insulation. 1. Materials were assembled: Three hats of similar thickness (4 mm), an ear thermometer and an outside thermometer were collected and 10 participants (3rd hour study hall students) were identified.
2. Measure and record outside temperature data
3. Measure and record ear temperature inside of a participant
4. Assign hat to participant and record
5. Participant stands outdoors, wearing hat for 10 minutes.
6. Participant's ear temperature is measured and recorded outside after 10 minute exposure.
7. Participant warms up inside until the temperature is returned to base.
8. Participant is assigned another hat and steps 4-7 are repeated. Results Participant Hat Temp. inside Temp. outside Change in Temp.

1 wool 44 C 43 C 10 C
1 polar fleece 44 C 40 C 2 C
1 cotton 44 C 40 C 4 C
3 Out data show that there is a connection between hat material and ear warmth. Our hypothesis was supported by our data. Wool hats provide the most significant insulation. Many additional questions arose during this project. First of all our method for testing ear temperature could have been more precise. Also, some of our subjects could not complete the test in one day, thus data was collected on different days with different outdoor temperatures. Another concern we have was the influence of moisture (or lack there of) in our experim. We think it would be interesting to test the hats under wetter conditions. Wednesday goal: form groups and brainstorm
Thursday goal: finalize question and hypothesis
Friday goal: finalize prior knowledge, methods

Monday - Wednesday: time to collect data

-complete data collection
-data analysis
-find results, write conclusion and reflection
-create posters
-present research to class
