Solar Cooker Project

Students will watch NOVA – Saved by the Sun.

In groups of two, students will go online to brainstorm ideas for solar oven designs.

Ovens will be designed and built at home.

Students will test their first model at home, and then redesign to improve efficiency.

Students will present their data to the class using media of their choosing.
