Solar Cookers

We introduce an open-ended inquiry via the design of solar cookers. By mixing physics, engineering, materials science, and resource studies, students can explore how to make useful solar cookers from readily available materials. There are several research questions currently being examined by people all over the world, and students are immersed into that same research, providing solutions that are saving lives and resources.
