Connetquot Elementary teacher Leslie Davis’ class has been conducting experiments on different types of energy. In their latest experiment, the students tested their theories on insulation and heat energy, analyzing different types of insulation (fat or blubber, fur, paper towel and plastic) to determine which was the best insulator. “After making a prediction, performing the experiment, collecting and comparing data, and drawing a conclusion, we found that the fat or blubber – we used Crisco shortening – was the best insulator,” said Davis.
