Our project is about building a solar-powered oven. By using a cardboard box, aluminum foil and varying insulation materials, we'll find out a version allowed for the greatest change in temperature, and thus the greatest amount of solar energy captured. Both ovens must be identical in structure and have the same food to be cooked, placed under the sun next to each other the only difference will be the type of material used to boost their cooking power. We thought that the oven with the aluminum foil booster will be the most efficient one, and after running some trials we were proved right; S’mores actually cooked and average of 11 minutes faster than newspaper booster oven.
