    How do you work out cooling rate? I'm planning an experiment of this hypothesis: 'The penguin in the middle of the huddle is warmer than a penguin on its own because it cools down more slowly.' How can you use and read a data logger properly?

    Well simply apply Newton's Law of Cooling.
    Temperature of the surroundings is higher so the rate of cooling is slower as long as penguins all have the same cooling constant (you can assume they do).
