What I learned...
1.) I made a solar oven that makes cooking easy and Eco-friendly for everyone. It is very simple and only uses a recycled box, plastic wrap, aluminum foil, scissors, and tape.
2.) I have always wanted to do something that would benefit the environment. I love recycling and believe there is a huge realm of possibility in the use of solar power. Therefore, I worked on my own and created this project.
3.) I made my solar oven at home. However, I also made another at camp when I shared my idea with several campers.
4.) At first I struggled with finding how to insert the food after I taped the plastic wrap over my Opening. I learned on my second build to leave the pre-made opening on the top of the box uncovered because it works great as an oven door. I am very proud of my unique idea and want to share it with others. It is fun, Eco-friendly, cool, and creates tasty treats!
