Ice Melt Science Project

Science experiments present a different aspect of science to the children. These experiments make the learning process quite interesting and fascinating for the children. With these science experiments kids can better understand and relate to the things happening around them. Projects and experiments like these are pretty easy to perform and are safe for the kids. They help in developing a child’s problem solving skills, innovation and interest in science. The Ice Melt Project is one of the most popular science experiments for the kids. This experiment is quite easy to carry out and does not requite much effort at all.

Which shape of ice cube melts the fastest :

To carry out the Ice Melt Project all you need is two clear glasses, warm water, cold water and ice cubes. First of all take these two

glasses and fill one of them with warm water and other with cold water till they are half full. At the same time put two cubes of ice in a glass containing warm water and two cubes of ice in a glass containing cold water.

Wait for the ice cubes to melt and find out in which glasses the ice cubes melt faster. You will see that the ice cubes melt faster in the glass with warm water. The temperature of warm water is more than cold water due to which the ice cube in glass with warm water melts faster.

Another similar Ice Melt Project can be conducted outside the house on a nice sunny day. All you need is ice cubes, sunny and shady surfaces. Firsts of all choose a sunny surface and then a shady surface.

Now take two ice cubes and place one on a sunny surface and other on shady surface. Wait and watch both the ice melt. You will see that the ice cube which was placed on sunny surface melts faster whereas the ice cube placed on shady surface takes more time to melt. The reason behind it is that the temperature of shady surface is less than sunny surface as a result of which it melts slowly.
