I am interested in solar cooking and solar energy in general because it seems like a cheap way to save some energy and reduce the ill effects of producing energy. I would also like to make a project to introduce my students to do - something that they can do at home.
About fifteen years ago, we (a co-teacher and me) used cardboard and Mylar to construct an "oven" that did a wonderful job of roasting hotdogs for students. I am sure that you could find the plans online. The temperatures were quite hot. It also had a huge WOW factor for the students....and their geometry teachers thanked us. :)

A little bit Ginger. A little bit Mary Ann.
