Some Like It Hot, Some Like It Cold  Robert G. Silberman
Students combine liquids and solids in a calorimeter and use a thermometer to determine if the reaction mixture gets hotter or colder. The goal is to find a combination of a liquid and a solid that could serve as the basis for a cold pack of the type used for athletic injuries.
