This year, we will be judging the winner of the Solar Oven Challenge by the
following criteria:

1- Use of recycled materials (5 points)

The more recycled materials you use to build your solar oven, the better! Many of
us have the necessary materials around our households. Plus: you’ll be saving the
planet from the greenhouse gas emissions it would’ve taken to produce new
materials. Recycling rules!

2- Maximum temperature reached (4 points)

Bring on the heat! In this category, we are evaluating the overall efficiency
of your solar oven as a functional cooking appliance by the maximum temperature
it reached. Tip: don’t put your solar oven in the shade!

3- Complexity of recipe chosen (3 points)

We all love S’mores! But let’s face it: they’re not the most challenging recipe
to make. In this category, you get points for trying to make a more complex
recipe in your solar oven. Bon appétit!

4- Originality of your solar oven (2 points)

Does your solar oven have some neat features that make it different from
the others?
Did you use a different design, or different materials? We want to hear about it!

5- How you shared the experience with others (3 points)

Did you invite other classes or staff members to taste your delicious recipe?
Did you have a solar oven bake sale to raise funds for a worthy cause?
These are the types of things we’ll look for to award you the points for this category.

6- Use of social media (3 points)

In this category, we’re evaluating social media output: videos

on your school’s YouTube channel, posts on Instagram/Twitter
@GreenLearning, pictures that you’ve taken throughout the
challenge, etc.

7- New this year! How much energy did you save by

cooking in a solar oven? (5 points)

By using a solar oven you are saving energy! That means you’re also saving
kilowatt hours (kWhs), GreenHouse Gases (GHGs) and money. Use the ‘Saving
Energy with Solar Ovens’ handout to help you calculate them.
