dc.description.abstractIn the design process of the oven, I will emphasize improvements in price, mobility and simplicity to the design. I will have access to a shop, including several tools in which I will build the oven. The design will include basic equations of the geometric shape of a parabola. The theory behind the cooker will include the power from the sun in watts depending on the location on the earth and the conditions of the environment, as well as some basic knowledge of solar energy. Finally I will do an analysis of other possible options, including different reflective materials, elevation, location and angle from the sun.en_US
