2: Solar Oven Engineering

Overview

This is a REMIX of Shelton and Robledo's "Solar Oven Engineering". An excel document has been added to assist in data collection, record keeping, and graph generation.

Students can work individually or in groups of 3 or 4 to create a solar oven out of a pizza box. Students are trying to figure out the best way to make a solar oven in order to melt the chocolate and marshmallow in the S’more. Students will be given a group of objects and tell them the basis of how to create a solar oven. The oven will need to be placed in direct sunlight for most of the day. This experiment works best on a very hot, sunny day.
