Summer Science Activities: Solar Cooking

By June 12, 2013

Follow me on:

Solar SmoresContinuing my summer enrichment series, this week I've added a new lesson plan that shows families how to Design a Solar Cooker.

You can find many designs for solar cookers online, but building one is not hard. So instead of giving step-by-step instructions, I boiled the project down to its basic components, and made figuring out the best way to create them part of the activity. Once you've got the hang of it, you might want to try to build a model big enough to make a meal. The directions on NASA's Climate Kids website are a good place to start.
