Solar Furnace

Avg. Ratings: 1.0 (1 Review)
Not every student fully appreciates the power of the Sun.

This compact furnace can demonstrate how hot sunlight can get. The 31 cm diameter parabolic reflector concentrates sunlight on a copper cup that is painted black. In full sunlight, temperatures can reach more than 150°C.
Includes: teacher’s guide.

No, I didn't recommend
Contains two plastic pieces: the reflector, shiny blue but not a mirror, and a clear plastic that might be the base. Not included: hardware to connect items, the copper receiver, arms to hold the reflector and copper cup. The directions for assembly are limited and the diagram does not match the parts.
