Students design mini-insulators (iceboxes) in an attempt to keep ice from melting and discover the challenges of refrigeration of 100 years ago. Students may have parents or grandparents who once owned an icebox. By designing their own icebox, students can experience some of the challenges their ancestors faced while trying to preserve food.
