Ideal for classroom demonstrations on solar energy!

The Solar Furnace effectively showcases the transfer of energy between solar radiation and thermal energy. Light from the sun’s rays are reflected off a large parabolic mirror and are focused onto a black colored copper cup containing water. In a few minutes, the water boils.

The large parabolic mirror’s angle is adjustable through 180° allowing it to be aimed at the sun at any time of day.  The Solar Furnace measures 18” H x 11.8” diameter.

Products being sold are not toys. They are for Educational / Labratory use only. They are not for use by children 12 and under.

Resources

NGSS Standards

K-PS3 Energy

  • K-PS3-1. Make observations to determine the effect of sunlight on Earth’s surface.

4-ESS3 Earth and Human Activity

  • 4-ESS3-1. Obtain and combine information to describe that energy and fuels are derived from natural resources and their uses affect the environment.

4-PS3 Energy

  • 4-PS3-4. Apply scientific ideas to design, test, and refine a device that converts energy from one form to another.

MS-PS3 Energy

  • MS-PS3-5. Construct, use, and present arguments to support the claim that when the kinetic energy of an object changes, energy is transferred to or from the object.



HS-PS3 Energy

  • HS-PS3-1. Create a computational model to calculate the change in the energy of one component in a system when the change in energy of the other component(s) and energy flows in and out of the system are known.
