Url: http://www.exploratorium.edu/snacks/cold_metal/
Publisher: Exploratorium (Organization).
Description: This site provides an activity on the conductivity and resistivity of various materials. A thermometer and other everyday materials like wood, metal, and styrofoam are used to compare temperatures detected by one’s hands with measured temperatures. The site contains an explanation of the observations and descriptions of insulators and conductors as well as materials needed and assembly for the activity. This activity is part of Exploratorium's Science Snacks series.
