Piedmont High School 9th grade class came together to build 45 solar ovens in one morning in May. The ovens are part of a community service project designed to provide this needed tool to communities in Sierra Leone (West Africa). Teacher Marna Chamberlain, inspired by building a solar oven at the Solar Schoolhouse Summer Institute for Educators, proposed the idea for the class project. Several weeks before the big build, a group of teachers, parents, and student leaders were trained in the oven assembly process by Tor from Solar Schoolhouse. The ovens next will be tested before being shipped.
