Prototype testing procedure
My prototype testing procedure was pretty simple. At the very begging, I did research on thermoses and what were good insulators and how they worked so I could get a better understanding of them. Then I started to plan my very first prototype. I figured out what materials I needed, how much it cost, and how I was going to put it together. After that I tested it out, at first, it didn’t go well I dropped temperature really quick. So after that, I reflected on what I could do to improve my prototype and i tried again. After that first prototype, the same procedure occurred every time.
I used the plastic and aluminium in my final product as my first prototype because I knew that they had good thermal conductivity. Whatever heat comes out of the aluminium the plastic will reflect it back towards the aluminium to bring it back in the glass. The glass was a good set structure for the water to go in where the heat wouldn’t come out easily because glass is very thick. The plastic lid made sure that heat was trapped in there and the plastic would reflect back heat.
