In this free Library NExT workshop, middle school students will use the Quest for Space Heat Starter Kit to explore heat transfer by building and programming three experiments in radiation, convection and conduction. Students will build the hardware for each experiment and then program in the Arduino environment and C programming language. Finally, students will run their experiment configurations on the International Space Station and analyze how microgravity affects different types of heat transfer.
