This Solar Oven STEM project is adapted from John Spencer's Tiny House Maker Lab. All credit is given to him. I adapted his Tiny House Maker Lab into a 5th grade level task: building a functioning solar oven. Students love this STEM project because they get to make S'mores at the end. This project takes approximately 4 days (depending on the class). Please also download the PowerPoint presentation (FREE) which goes along with this project. The PowerPoint presentation goes along exactly with the Student Journal.
This project is great for building group norms. It is also a great way to wrap up the school year (which I did this year).
