For the second year, I’m holding the Solar Oven Chili Cook-off.
Nothing like bringing the school year to a close at the computer & tech lab, than something that does not involve batteries, software or screens. I think we have all had enough of that!
- Three 5th grade classes and three 6th grades will bring their own recipes and compete.
- Next Tuesday’s temps should reach 105 degrees. The oven usually gets to 275 – 300 degrees, even without reflectors.
- I’m bringing a Sri Lankan killer chili for those who dare!
Though this is the second annual Chili Cookoff, this is the third year of incorporating a solar oven project into my STEM curriculum, thanks to Solavore. We use the Solavore Sport ovens. In the picture, extreme right is Solavore founder and CEO, Ann Patterson.
