  • December 2013: Engineers Without Borders - Iran (EWB-Iran) participated in "Research Week" (Dec. 14 - 20, 2013) at Fasa University, highlighting the importance of solar cookers. In this seminar they informed students and professors about the different types of solar cookers and their efficiency. The team included Soheil Salimi (Founder and Lecturer), Razieh Amini nezhad (Food Science and Technology student), Niloufar Nekueian (Mathematics student), and Fatemeh Rahimi (Mechanical engineering student). They tested two types of solar cookers. The Suntastic Panel Cooker, which raised the internal temperature of an empty 4-liter black pot with a clear glass lid to 150° C (302° F) in about 30 minutes, and 3 liters of water heated from 26° C (79°F) to pasteurization point, 70°C (158°F), in about 50 minutes.
