Solar Oven

Wednesday, August 4th, 2010

Jon has been building and experimenting with Solar Ovens recently, which will hopefully culminate into a Solar Oven workshop with the next month while the sun is still high enough to use it effectively in NEMO.

He’s got one working made from a cardboard box, foil, wheat paste (a glue made from boiling wheat), a block of wood, and a plastic produce bag from the grocery store.   It gets pretty scorching in there.  It’s hit at least 250.

He designed it off of this one, and will be making a few other models too.

Bike Wheel Trellis – Hard Luffa

Friday, July 16th, 2010

Here’s the pictures of Michelle’s second Bike Wheel Trellis.  The Luffa’s are loving it.  There was concern that the rims would get too hot in the sun and burn the plant, but they really don’t get hot at all.  Hooray for creativity!
