Has your computer or electronic device ever overheated? Keeping devices cool is essential to prevent data loss! But it’s not just your device; when you take great pictures or write social media posts, the data are stored in Data Centres, which produce a lot of heat. We built our own thermometers and explored ways to cool materials with the same processes Data Centres use to keep our data safe and available in the cloud.
