Every year Gilbert Junior High School's Honors Science classes build solar ovens to harness enough solar energy to cook hot dogs!   Materials used are satellite dishes, cardboard boxes, glass, shoe boxes, and projection TV screens.
 
The oven's highest temperature was recorded two years ago:  OVER 1600 degrees F!!
