Our Sun is a powerful star that brings us light and heat. You may have experiences that this summer. You may have gotten a tan or a sunburn. This mission is a fun way to have the sun WORK for you. You will need your Science Buddy to really help you gather materials and safely completely this activity.
In your mission report, keep track of the time of day you used your solar oven and how long it takes to make your S'mores when your marshmallows and or chocolate melt. Which one melts first? How hot does it get? You can make this into an experiment by seeing if you use a shoe box and get the same result. Does it go faster, slower, or not at all? Does the surface need to be black underneath? Does another color work better? Make sure to record what you did and what you discovered in your Mission Report!
