Making a Thermal Container for School Project?

I am in high school and am looking of information on making a homemade thermal container. It needs to be made without using foil. Any suggestions? Thank you.

Hi Tavion,
Go to You can type in the seach box for what you are looking for and you're probably going to find it as bob has done everything. Also, try going to YouTube. Again, type in your key words in the search and you'll probably find something on the subject. I hope this helps and good luck.

You don't give many details, so this is a shot in the dark. Maybe it will be what you need. We make yogurt in a homemade thermal container. It is a styrofoam cooler lined with old rags. We put the warm milk and starter inside the cooler packing rags around everything.


Then we top them off with more rags and put the lid on, and put a weight on the lid. In about four hours we have a batch of yogurt. Hope this helps.

Many years ago while in school in U.K. I learned about hay boxes. A hot container put into a box stuffed with hay would continue to cook and stay hot overnight.

Perhaps you could adapt this idea to what ever size you need?
