As education is probably the most important component in spreading the benefits and uses of solar cooking, Classroom resources will be the location for materials, and other appropriate resources, used for learning, and teaching others, about solar cooking.

Lesson plansEdit

  • 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. Making a Solar Oven
  • Solar Cooking Lesson Plan, grades 6-8 Students experiment with a virtual solar cooker to discover the mathematical relationships among reflection, transmission and absorption. Students then apply their knowledge to building and testing a solar oven of their own invention.
