Researchers at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, or Berkeley Lab, have engineered a more efficient wood-burning stove for use in refugee camps in Darfur. These stoves are decreasing the amount of money families must spend on firewood.
The e-book Engineering Is Saving the World with Cookstoves tells the story of the need for a new design for cookstoves in Darfur and how researchers have worked to make that happen. Videos, animation, and interactive graphics explain the design process and provide a deep dive into scientific concepts such as combustion. This video is part of the e-book.
