Situation or background of the problem
Nowadays, people are using too much energy sources in the earth such as electricity, coal energy, and water energy. So the available source is reducing and becoming not enough for human to use. Then people made a new way that can either use the energy, meanwhile save the energy, it is renewable energy. It has the better way to make the energy recycle and save them which is good for the earth
Statement of the problem
Be made from entirely used materials, expect for any electrical components.
Not require human assistance to work.
Dimensions no larger than 1m x 1m x 1.5m (l x w x h) and no heavier than 10 kg.
Utilize maximum efficiency of the renewable energy through design.
Solar energy cooker is a kind of tool that help people to cook many kinds of foods. They use the heat that come from the solar energy. It turns the energy to heat to cook food. This kind of invent help people to serve electricity, because people always use coal energy and electricity to cook.
The solar cooker consist with a few parts. First is collector element, the most important part which absorb the energy and the heat from the sun. The second part is the bracket that helps the whole tool to stand up. The third part is the pot, the thing that cook the food.
Different parts have the necessary for cooking the food. The collector element need to be first introduced. This kind of things can be made of mirror or aluminum foil, because these material have enough ability to absorb the heat and can be fast to send the heat and react with the solar energy which means it is the part that get energy from the sun and contribute the energy to the other things so that there is no need with electricity to make the pot hot, and it is the only thing that spend and save the energy. So it is the most important part in the whole tool. It would be convenient to use the body of the umbrella and put the material above on it, in that degree which is not flat has an effective way to contain the sunshine, because it can concentrate the sunshine to the middle. After the aluminum foil was put on the body of the umbrella, there need to be a place that is in the middle that can put the pot on. The pot would better be touched with the surface of the aluminum foil, so it can absorb the heat in a fast way.
Than is the bracket. It need to be hard enough to hold the pot, the collector element and the iron. It can be made of clothes rack. It need to be built in the shape of triangle, so it can be firm.
The pot which is the last part of our solar energy cooker. It can divide with the main system and move flexible. It has a handle that we can hold it the way we want. We can use the wood from something that is useless to be the handle, because it can insulate the heat.
To sum up, the materials we need is metal bar which from the umbrella, the collector element which from mirrors and aluminum foil, pot that is consist with the old plate and the wood handle and eggs. The last one is the light or the sun that is able to give strong heat and energy to the collector element
About our theme, the idea of it would be using Daniel’s headshot and emoji. We will print Daniel’s headshot and emoji and we will stick them to the pot, the back of solar energy board as a logo and eggs.
