Kaitlyn and Angie

Our names are Kaitlyn S. and Angelina T. Our school is Hidden Oaks Middle and were both in 6th grade. These are a few pictures of our solar oven.

The last picture says 127 degrees farenhight this was I believe our 3rd concept.

Our team has never been in a solar cooker competition but our school has been doing this for a while according to our science teacher. We do not know if our school has won any awards for the solar cook off. One interesting fact though is that we had about 5 solar oven ideas before we had our final product! The materials we used were a picture frame glass, a small black storage bin, gorilla tape, paper towels,tinfoil, a thermometer, and zip ties. We used the black storage bin which was from our original solar oven and the idea of having tinfoil came from Kaitlyn’s dad. The non-team member that helped was Kaitlyn’s dad, he mostly helped with the glass and taught us how to use the zip ties. Our concept was basically an oven! Being able to open and close whenever you need, and the heat building up and up and not escaping.

The highest our solar oven got to was 168 degrees fahrenheit! The sun was out about midday and there were no clouds, but even when there were clouds it was at 130 degrees fahrenheit!
