This is the inside of our new solar oven!

This is the fresnel lens. It is very important to our oven!
This photo shows the making of a stand for the fresnel lens.

Side: Asparagus

We painted the oven to match our french theme!

    Great Fresnel lens design, which is always helpful for cooking. Good use of insulating materials.

    Great job collaborating and explaining how the elements of a solar cooker all work, especially the Fresnel Lens. I love the French themed cooker decor and menu choice. So clever. Keep up the great work.

    Your menu sounds delicious! How creative! That certainly looks like it got smoking hot! The cover must have made a huge difference.
