 Answer 4 questions handed out in class using the following links.

1.       Why are solar box cookers able to heat up inside?

2.       Why is there heat loss in the solar boxes?

3.       Why does the angle at which the sun’s ray strike the Earth vary? (may need to google that)

 Check these links out for ideas. Look around for good ways to make a cooker. I will give you plastic wrap and aluminum. Make sure you know what the aluminum and wrap are used for.
