How do different surfaces affect the amount of sunlight reflected and absorbed? 
Design a method of measuring how much sunshine is available each day.

In the summer time, when I was walking barefoot, I noticed that some surfaces are much warmer than others. I could easily stand and walk on a wooden board, but street asphalt was too hot to stand on. I could also feel such differences by touching different objects. 

This project is an opportunity to study the reasons that some surfaces absorb more heat from the sun.

 Project description:
In this project you will study the factors that affect the absorption and reflection of sunlight. You will need at least a few hours of sunlight to complete your experiments. The experiments can be done outdoor if the weather allows, otherwise you can do the experiments at home or school, in a room that gets enough sunlight.
