Physics To Win It:

Heat Is on

Why solar ovens

Why Solar Ovens

  • Go Green


  • Nature Conservancy: Haiti


  • Pizza Box


Your mission

Your Mission

  • To design a solar oven that will create the most thermal energy in 45 minutes using common supplies (cardboard boxes (shoe box, pizza box, larger box, etc.) tin foil, plastic wrap, newspaper, etc.)

  • You must work in groups of 3 or 2 (need team name)

  • You will calculate volume of oven (minimum of 1,000cm3, joules of energy converted, and power of oven

  • You can choose to bring ingredients from the provided recipes (only) to make something for your group/self

Provided items

Provided Items

  • Tin foil (about 4 sheets (8.5x11))

  • Plastic wrap (about 4 sheets of 8.5x11)

  • 2 sheets black paper (which I would like back at the end)

  • Glue, staples, tape (not very strong)

Items your team must provide

Items Your Team Must Provide

  • The container (be creative!)

  • Extra tin foil (if needed)

  • Extra plastic wrap (if needed)

  • Insulation (if needed)

  • Substitutes for any of the above materials (for example: if you want plexi-glass or something more heavy duty then plastic wrap)

  • Any pre-cooked food items (basically we are only melting or re-heating foods for safety reasons, must come packaged)



  • Please use caution when cutting cardboard, especially with sharp scissors or exacto knives

  • Please only bring food that is pre-cooked and packaged
