This module is designed to help students: (1) describe a way of tapping solar energy; (2) identify the main parts of a box type solar cooker; (3) describe how each part contributes to the trapping of heat energy in the cooker; (4) cook some food in a solar cooker; and (5) recognize that food cooked in a solar cooker is safe to eat. It includes: an introductory comment about solar energy, pointing out that the Philippines is within the equatorial band of the earth which receives the highest concentration of solar radiation; information on cooking with solar energy; activities (which focus on the parts of a solar cooker and on cooking with the device); a self-check (with answers); and instructions for constructing a solar cooker.
