How to stop ice from melting?

I'm a sixth grade student and I need step by step instructions for a science projectHow do you stop an ice cube from melting without putting it in an refrigerator or cooler?


You could simply put it on a cookie sheet or flat pan made preferably of aluminum (aluminum because it is a good conductor of temperature-hot or cold) and then place that pan on top of a bowl which is filled with dry iceOr you could simply place the ice cube on top of some aluminum foil and then place the foil with ice cube on top, in a dish which is surrounded by dry iceThe dry ice is much colder than ice made from water, and therefore would maintain the temperature surrounding the ice cube or ice chunk at a level that is below freezing (less than 32 F) and thus, the ice would not melt.
