Description:

This page provides turn-key directions for a classroom project to build a solar oven with flat reflector panels. It was designed to help learners understand that, to harness the sun as a source of energy, solar energy must be converted from visible light into heat or electricity. The construction kit calls for simple materials such as cardboard and duct tape, and includes a downloadable pattern for building the oven. Background information is provided. This resource, from the Pembina Institute, is part of a collection of hands-on projects on the topic of renewable energy.
