WHAT’S ROASTING IN THE SOLAR OVEN? FOURTH GRADERS EXPLORE ALTERNATIVE ENERGY


During a STEM activity, Mrs. Lynn’s fourth graders explored alternative energy by building solar ovens. 

 

The students investigated good and poor thermal insulators; the insulation with the least and most environmental impact; and the life cycle of a piece of paper. They tested their ovens and rated the best insulators, with the least environmental impact.

 

For a final evaluation of their solar-powered appliance, they roasted smores!
