Cold Play: What will keep the puck cold for the entire play?

Grade 8 - Bedford Academy

Warm ice hockey pucks bounce randomly while frozen pucks are more predictable. I experimented with different puck designs to keep the puck cold, and therefore reduce bounce, for a longer period of time. Rebound property of each puck was measured with a homemade apparatus. Most of the experimental pucks had an increase rebound after 15 minutes, yet all performed better than the NHL Regulation puck.
