Can You Cook a S'more Without Fire or Electricity?

Posted by WMHT Web Editor on

Can you cook a s’more without a fire or electricity? Find out with a little help from the Science U team in this activity from Penn State and WPSU! The experiment begins with a look at how to make pizza box solar ovens that harness the sun's energy and then explores how to use it to cook a s'more. If you're looking for a fun science project to do with your kids this summer, this is it. All you need are a few ingredients and a sunny day!

Watch the video and download the step-by-step instructions and guided scientific questions to help them make a scrumptious treat – and investigate how solar ovens use solar energy to cook food. P.S. They’ll also get a lesson in how the Earth’s greenhouse effect works.
