Yes, its tough to do the aluminum/copper one in a school environment--espcially if it is in a classroom and not a lab setting. Plus, almost everyone can related to the hot enbd of the stick situation.

Although the physics in a heat pipe are not really that remarkable, it is indeed a great invention. And it is a very good example of applied physics, and indeed it is a very good way to introduce people to physics. The aluminum rod melting through the copper penny is another one, but it is much more complex to set up, and the explanation of how it works is more likely to produce a blank stare.
