Science Experiment – Solar Ovens

Throughout Term 1, the Year Four students have been learning how to work responsibly in collaborative groups. This has involved students working in small groups of three or four, and each person taking on a specific role to help their group achieve a common goal.

Students demonstrated their skills during a science experiment related to solar energy. Students worked within their collaborative groups to create a solar oven using a cardboard box and tin foil. The students had to follow a given set of instructions and work together to create the oven and make a delicious chocolate – marshmallow treat.

The photos below demonstrate the wonderful team work skills students developed throughout the activity – and the amazing fun they had!
