   •  Create your own informercial for your solar oven

Step 1: Watch the Experiment Video

In this experiment, you will build a solar oven from a pizza box and melt some s’mores. Solar ovens are easy and fun to make!

A solar oven is a great example of how the sun’s solar rays can be captured and used to cook food.

Did you know pizza boxes are great thermal insulators and will help keep the heat inside the solar oven?  You will then make some modifications to make the oven work better.
