* In this activity, students will learn about using the Sun’s energy to meet our needs. They will be introduced to concepts around solar energy needed for solar cooking (heat) – dark colours for absorbing sunlight, greenhouse effect, light colours for reflecting sunlight and insulation. Using this science knowledge, they will then construct and use a solar oven. [http://sciencelearn.org.nz/Science-Stories/Harnessing-the-Sun/Making-a-solar-oven Making a Solar Oven]
