Junior Science - Data Logging

Today Mr Gilmartin's 1st year science class used data logging temperature probes to monitor heat loss under various conditions.

Experiments using data logging equipment can:
take readings with high degrees of accuracy
be left without human intervention
be set to take readings over a long period of time, eg hourly temperature readings every day
be set to take many readings in a short period of time
be used when there is a safety risk involved, eg extreme cold or heat

What did you expect to happen.
What were the temp. differences and why?
Was it a fair test
