This science fair project was conducted to determine if ice will melt more gradually in a reflective container. The test was done using containers covered with aluminum foil, white paper and a transparent container.

1. For this science fair project, the independent variable is the material used to cover the conical flask i.e. kitchen paper towels and aluminum foil, and finally, an uncovered flask. The dependent variable is the time taken for the ice to melt. This is determined by inspecting the ice inside the flask to ascertain if it has melted. The constants (control variables) are the size of the conical flask, the amount/weight of ice cubes placed in each flask and the room temperature. 2. Using a digital weighing scale, 150grams of ice cubes is used. Equal amounts of ice are .....
