Shelter Designs

Post date: Nov 17, 2018 11:04:09 AM

We have been applying our knowledge about insulators and conductors to design shelters for ‘ a hamster-sized person’. Our shelters need to let through light and insulate against heat and sound. Owls think they have some great designs but we need to carry out some experiments to be sure the materials work in the way we hope they will!

Watch this space as we carry out experiments to find out how well bubble wrap insulated against sound and how sandpapaer! and clay insulates heat.
