Hands-on Activity: Cooking with the Sun: Comparing Yummy Solar Cooker Designs

Students learn about using renewable energy from the sun for heating and cooking as they build and compare the performance of four solar cooker designs. They explore the concepts of insulation, reflection, absorption, conduction and convection. Then, as time permits, they make and eat quick-cooking food like marshmallow and chocolate s'mores.
Materials in TeachEngineering are organized in a topical hierarchy. You can find many other materials for learning about energy there, with explicit relationships to the Next Generation Science Standards.
