Solar oven

This project helps to understand how the greenhouse effect can be used to 'trap' the heat of the sun.   The sun's rays (short wavelengths of visible light) penetrate through the glass of the oven and heat the elements inside. When this heat is reissued as infra-red radiations (longer wavelengths) ... »

Solar hot water panel

The construction of a solar hot water panel helps to understand how it is possible to heat water with the Sun. The basic principle is to circulate water in a black pipe placed behind a glass exposed to the Sun. Thanks to the greenhouse effect and the black colour that absorbs most of the Sun's rays, it is ... »
