Discovery Solar Oven

Use solar energy to make a tasty, sweet treat in a pizza box.

Most electricity is generated from a variety of energy resources. We use different mixtures of energy resources to provide electricity to our local communities, states, and countries, and around the world. But did you know that access to energy can look very different based on where you live?

In some places, people can power up their cell phones or flip a switch to instantly turn on a light. But in other places, students don’t have enough electricity to light up their room so they can do their homework at night or even cook a meal with their family.

However, there are solutions that can help improve those conditions. For example, did you know you can harness the power of the Sun to create renewable energy?

Today, we’re going to do just that by creating our own solar-powered oven.
