Solar Cooker What Can Solar Cookers Achieve? Introduction Overview Materials By: Chrystinamarie Wellington
Sponsor: Ms. C. Bego
Mr. Andy: Period 4B I studied about renewable and nonrenewable energy and I investigated two overall suggestions:

As one of the largest energy consuming countries we should try to conserve and save the nonrenewable energy resources that we have attained over the years.

We should look into other natural renewable resources. Solar energy is renewable and it’s free to create--not to be harnessed with solar ovens and panels.

I designed one made mostly from scrap materials and it works efficiently. •All sides slope in about 30 degrees.

•The aluminum foil is to focus and concentrate the sun’s energy.

•The sun’s energy is reflected off the foil and is focused to the center, which is where i put the food. Hypothesis If a pot must be a certain degree of heat for cooking, how can I, by using a solar cooker, make that possible? Solar cooking can give people around the world a hand. It can help establish a safer way to cook in rural regions that are stressed by famine. But not only that, those of us who just do not feel like sweating over an open fire or putting in that pain staking peek inside the oven every few minutes waiting for that Thanksgiving turkey to be finished. A solar cooker lets the UV light rays in and then converts them to longer infrared light rays that cannot escape. Infrared radiation has the right energy to make the water, fat and protein molecules in food vibrate vigorously and heat up. It is not the sun’s heat that cooks the food, but rather it is the suns rays that are converted to heat energy that cook the food.
