Since Nathan has shown some interest in environmental issues, I suggested we find a project that dealt with recycling or alternative power. He wanted to try something with solar power.
So, we gathered supplies and started building.
Assembling the foil lined cardboard boxes to make...... a solar oven!
Nathan had some great ideas for his display board.
(Check out that hand crafted sun in the middle!)
We live in sunny California, but March is not the best time to attempt cookie baking in a solar oven. It did get pretty warm (175* F), but not hot enough to bake our cookies.
And even though the cookies didn't bake....my little scientist won the Sweepstakes Trophy!
He was very excited about his success and we couldn't be more proud of him.
