Heat (Thermodynamics) Science Fair Project

Does Wind Cool?

Does Wind Cool? | Science Fair Projects | STEM Projects
Let's find out if wind can really cool us down. We'll set up two pans of warm water and see which one evaporates faster.


The hypothesis is that the pan with the air current blowing on it will evaporate faster than the second pan.

Method & Materials

You will place two pans of warm water 16 inches apart, one with a fan blowing on it and one without. You will check the pans at 15-minute intervals and record the results.
You will need two pans, a fan, warm water, a log book, and a measuring cup.


The results showed that the pan with the air current blowing on it evaporated 5.170 times faster than the second pan. This suggests that the fan was able to evaporate the water quicker and replace it with a cooler, dryer layer.

Why do this project?

This science project is interesting because it shows how wind can be used to cool us down.

Also Consider

Variations to consider include using different temperatures of water or different speeds of the fan.
