Cook With Lids On

Pan lid retaining heat

Cook with lids on. Regularly putting lids on pans is quicker, wastes less heat and is cheaper.

Here is an educational opportunity based on this idea (for 7-10 year olds) and it helps understand saving energy.

This is extended in a two part experiment for slightly older scientists: part 1 is suitable for 11-13 year olds and older and part 2 for more advanced learners (14-16 year olds).

These can be copied and amended as required by teachers and parents.
