Provost Elementary School

Hey Provost, our sixth grade students had the opportunity to study the solar system and how heat transfer works. They had some quick lessons about the Sun, radiation, and conduction.

Students then broke out into groups to design and build solar ovens using a variety of materials. Designs were really unique!

They then took their solar ovens out on the hottest day of the year so far to try to melt s’mores. The dripping chocolate and marshmallow prove that many of the oven designs worked. Everyone agreed that the testing was the tastiest part of the engineering process!

Preparar un dulce con un horno solar

Hey Provost, nuestros estudiantes de sexto grado tuvieron la oportunidad de estudiar el sistema solar y cómo funciona la transferencia de calor. Tuvieron algunas lecciones rápidas sobre el Sol, la radiación y la conducción.

A continuación, los estudiantes se dividieron en grupos para diseñar y construir ho os solares utilizando una variedad de materiales. ¡Los diseños eran realmente únicos!

Luego, en el día más caluroso del año, sacaron sus ho os solares para intentar derretir los bombónes. El chocolate y el bombón goteando demostraron que muchos de los diseños de los hornos funcionaban.

Todos estuvieron de acuerdo en que las pruebas fueron la parte más sabrosa del proceso de ingeniería.
