The Solar Oven Project's goal is to rebuild the solar oven in Bovay Lab. The solar oven was originally constructed in 2010, and has been subject to a significant amount of wear and tear. Continuous use involving a wide variety of materials and chemicals has brought down the quality of the solar oven’s effectiveness. Our goal is to build an updated version of the oven. We are planning to coat the interior with thermal paint, to reconstruct the exterior of the oven with improved insulation materials and work to improve on the software it is connected to make it more realistic to a sunny day in Ithaca. Our ultimate intention with this project is to provide a cleaner, safer, and more effective oven for ESW project testing and solar power simulating.
