  2. 2. Build a Solar Cooker<br />A solar cooker uses the energy of the Sun to cook food. An essential part of a solar cooker is a reflector. This is a shiny surface that reflects and concentrates the Sun’s energy. There are many possible shapes, but most use a bowl shape.<br />

This prevents hot air from escaping. This will raise the temperature and speed up cooking time. The enclosure needs to be transparent so sunlight gets in. <br /><ul><li>If you are using a pot to contain your food, it is better to get a black one. A black surface absorbs more heat than a lighter-colored surface. </li></li></ul><li>
