Adventures in Homeschooling - The Lego Experiment, Part 2

In The Lego Experiment Part 1, we melted a Lego brick to see whether it would melt, and if so, at what temperature. Today, we continued our torture of plastic bricks (I keep telling my children that the bricks gave their lives for science) by comparing how a Lego brick and a MegaBlock brick melted.

Our hypothesis was that the less-expensive MegaBlock (the black block in the photos below) would melt more. We were wrong. The Lego brick actually melted more quickly. View the evidence below.
