Anthony Maisano - Pizza Box Solar Oven

Thermometer, Tinfoil, Pizza Box, Scissors, Sheet Protectors, Newspaper, Ruler, Tape, Glue, Skewer, Black Construction Paper, Graham Crackers, Marshmallows, and Chocolate

Equipment

The oven did reach the expectation of creating an edible s'more. Even though the chocolate did melt and the marshmallows became soft, the experiment indicates that in order to have a fully melted ooey gooey s'more, the solar oven would require more cooking time.

Result

PIZZA BOX SOLAR OVEN!

Using scissors cut the pizza box lid on three sides (1" from each side) to create a flap then glue the dull side of the foil to the flap. Next on the inside bottom section of the box, glue the dull side of tin foil again. Glue the black paper on top of the foil on the inside bottom section and place rolled newspaper on the sides for insulation. Cut the sheet protector to fit the open section of the lid (where flap was cut) and seal it tightly to the inside of the box top. Place the item to be cooked on the black paper on the inside, as well as the thermometer, close the top lid and open the flap. Poke the skewer through the top of the flap order to keep the flap upright (see photo). Place the box in the direction of the sun and adjust the box and flap as the sun rises to keep the reflection strong. Happy Solar Cooking!

Method

Yum!

If the sun increases the temperature inside the solar oven, then the chocolate and the marshmallows on the s'more will melt because the tinfoil will reflect the sun's rays on the s'more.
