SOLAR S'MORES!
Build Your Own Pizza Box Solar Oven

A FUN, EDUCATIONAL WORKSHOP

For ages 8-14, but younger and older can enjoy the fun, too! Each participant is given an oven kit to build themselves and KEEP for their own. Michael guides the construction effort and provides a demonstration of solar energy using models he's built, including: a windmill, solar car, and solar music box.

An excellent craft-based project that---sun willing---provides immediate results in the form of solar s'mores! Workshops require about 45 minutes depending on level of depth desired.
