Solar Experiment

Solar is one of the few classes where being a tech is basically nap time; after setting out the solar powered toys, aligning the telescopes, and putting out the cookies to bake you get to kick back in your lawn chair and read. Every fifteen minutes or so you check the telescopes to make sure they're tracking and move the solar ovens so they stay in the sunlight, other than that it's the most relaxing "job" here. Well, one of our ovens was broken last month and getting enough cookies for a whole class has been a challenge, so last night I made my own oven out of a pizza box. I think I need to make a couple of adjustments, but overall it worked quite well.
