Mrs. Ilardo's Solar Cookers


As part of an integrated Math, Science and Technology unit, Mrs. Ilardo’s Fifth grade class explored Solar Energy and its applications. For the final design challenge, the students were asked to design and construct a solar oven that would reach at least 150 degrees. The students researched various types of solar cookers and used the information to create their own original designs. The students will be testing their designs using foods like hot dogs, smores, brownies and pizza.
