Solar Oven Throw Down
Oct. 10, 2018, on the University of Arizona Mall
Nearly 600 UA Engineering students compete in a mass cook-off as they test and demonstrate the low-cost solar ovens they designed and built from scratch. Freshmen showcase their creativity and math prowess in a bid to calculate the expected temperatures of their thermodynamic designs. Faculty and industry judges select winners and award prizes. The event is sponsored by W.L. Gore & Associates.
