This WebQuest asks students to think about heat transfer as it relates to their every day lives and to think of ways to improve energy efficiency in their homes.

This WebQuest will help you find answers to the above questions. It will connect what you have learned about heat transfer with your every day life, specifically your home environment. Let's get started!
