Solar ovens and skillets are designed to maximize the capture of solar radiation and are a fantastic way to cook and purify water for everyday use and especially in resource-limited environments. Ten different ovens ranging from box cookers to evacuated tubes to parabolic dish reflectors will be on display. This basic, conceptual physics discussion is open to all participants regardless of science background.  151 College Street, Boone, NC 28608-2091
