Make a Solar Tyre Oven

Make a Solar Tyre Oven

Solar tyre oven

A fantastic idea for sunny days, this simple and effective solar tyre oven is a great Science project for the Summer. Using just a tyre, some glass, newspaper, silver foil and a cooking pot you can cook food in the sun for free! Moses from Uganda shows how to make the tyre cooker with this how to guide. In many African countries people walk to collect firewood to cook their food, or spend up to 50% of their income buying wood or charcoal. The materials needed to make this solar oven are very cheap and fairly easy to get hold of in developing countries, making this a great way to cook food that saves fuelwood and money.
