Build a Solar Oven

Saturday, May 29, 2021

Every hour, the Earth receives enough energy from the Sun to power 2880 TRILLION lightbulbs!  To put it another way, every day, the Sun provides 35,000 times the total amount of energy humans currently consume. We can capture this solar energy by converting it to electricity or using the sunlight’s warmth for heating. With just a few household items, we will build our own solar oven, which can be used to make s’mores, nachos, and more!

Preparation: Cardboard box (preferably pizza box), aluminum foil, aluminum dish/roasting pan (or more foil), plastic wrap, glass bowl, tape, glue, ruler, scissors, pen or pencil, black paper.  If you want to make s’mores, you’ll need these ingredients: graham crackers, chocolate, and marshmallows. 

Expert: Engineers from the University of Toronto’s Blue Sky Solar Racing Club.
