PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

If you are trying to integrate an international flair into your science and math curriculum, solar ovens are a great place to start. Students will design, build, test, and present a solar oven design with the objective of heating a hot dog the hottest. This is a hands-on STEM project for hands-on students. This works great when integrated scatterplots, best-fit functions, with energy. There are plenty of great opportunities to extend this learning into the humanities as well! Temperature probes with TI's work great! Any will do.

In this 8 page document you will be given a mapping to the Content Standards, an outline for how to implement the project, and handout resources for students to use.

Of course I did not invent the idea of the Solar Oven, but I have extended it into my Algebra 1, Algebra 2 and PreCalculus classrooms.

EVERYTHING IS NOW ALIGNED TO THE COMMON CORE! YAY!

I have done it with pizza boxes and aluminum foil. Tape of course. Some sort of temperature probes will be needed for the lab. Any other questions, just ask!
