  • 2012 (Nationwide) Teachers, it’s time to register for re-energy.ca’s 2011/12 Solar Oven Challenge. Students build, test, and bake with solar ovens using the construction plans provided at re-energy.ca, or using plans of their own design. You submit photos and descriptions of their creations, and in June, prizes are awarded to the class or group with the best submissions. Open to all Canadians, participants have ranged from grades 3 to 12, and from science classes to environmental clubs. To see past winners and submissions and to learn more about GreenLearning’s Solar Oven Challenge, visit the re-energy.ca website. If you’re not in Canada, the activity itself is still interesting and can be used – it’s only the contest that is restricted. Submission deadline with projects has been extended to June 8th, 2012. Classes and other groups participating in our annual Solar Oven Challenge can collaborate with one another at COOL 2.0. On the COOL 2.0 website, teachers can do it all: find the solar oven resources, pose questions to one another, discuss their class projects, and share project stories and photos.
