What is the Solar Oven Challenge?

GreenLearning Canada hosts this delectable renewable energy challenge for Canadian classes every year which challenges participants to build, test, and bake with solar ovens. Students use the solar oven construction plan provided by re-energy.ca, or they design their own plans. Teachers register their classes—which in the past have ranged from grade 3 through to grade 12, and from science classes to environmental clubs—to be eligible to win prizes and certificates.
