Last month the challenge was trying to keep things warm, but this month the challenge is going to try to keep things cold! The weather sure does change a lot in New York from cold and freezing to above freezing and sunny during the winter. When it was snowy, you might have built a snowman, but now it might have melted. What if you wanted to keep it around? Do you think you’d be allowed to put it in the freezer? We are not going to try and build a large enough freezer for a snowman, but a cooler that will keep ice or snow from melting for a period of time if you brought it inside.
Your cooler does have some criteria and constraints. Only the materials provided can be used in your design. You are only allowed to use a certain amount of materials per group noted in the list. The cooler has to be one that is easy to open to get the snow or ice out.
