Steve Spangler Science: Solar Oven S’mores

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

So many great things are synonymous with “summertime yummies!” We can’t think of a summer treat we enjoy quite as much as a s’more: warm, drippy chocolate oozing around a melted marshmallow and sandwiched in a graham cracker. But, what would you do if you weren’t allowed to have a fire or didn’t have the materials needed to build one? We came up with a pretty neat way to harness solar energy to create a simple solar-powered cooker. You can make a delicious batch of s’mores without a fire!
