Exploring Properties - Heat Transfer

"Exploring Properties - Heat Transfer" is a hands-on activity in which visitors investigate how quickly heat is transferred through two different materials. They learn that graphene is a very good conductor of heat and that the way a material behaves on the macroscale is affected by its structure on the nanoscale.
