        Solar Cooking Race | Project Learning Garden

        Students will explore heat, energy, and transfer in the garden by melting an ice cube as quickly as possible; investigating radiation with ultraviolet-detecting solar beads; observing convection currents using hot and cold colored water; measuring the temperature above different surfaces outside; designing a solar oven; cooking veggies from the garden; and designing a way to protect tender plants from cold weather. These concepts are explained with this learning resource from Captain Planet's Learning Gardens Program.
