A Great Summer Project for Cheese Lovers and Engineers

Forget the Eclipse: How to Make a Solar Oven in a Jiffy!Forget the solar eclipse, it only comes once in a while, and lasts only 10 minutes! Cook up some lunch all year long, by harnessing the power from “Earth’s yellow sun” in a solar oven.

Making a solar oven isn’t just for school projects, they can be a great way to spend a summer day with family. All you need is a pizza box, aluminum foil, plastic wrap and black construction paper and in no time you can have s’mores cooked by solar power!

Start by cutting a square flap out of the lid and cover it with foil. Then, cover the hole you cut with a few layers of plastic wrap, making sure that no heat can escape. Next, cover the inside with more foil and black paper. Finally, take your solar oven outside and use the foil on the flap to shine rays onto the oven below.

But, can it make s’mores?

What about those s’mores? You’ll need to preheat the oven first and then after about an hour of cooking, you’ll have a batch of gooey s’mores. Yum!
