North Middle School eighth grade students in Mrs. Etheridge's and Mrs. Haridson's Gatoraid STEM classes recently used their engineering skills to build solar ovens.  The students had a specific list of materials available and had to use their knowledge of radiant heat to design their solar box. Students then made s'mores.  The students evaluated which box design worked best and determined the length of cook time needed for their s'mores to cook using the sun. The results, they said, were delicious. Pictured, from left, are Danica Stovall, Sydney Webb, Danika Arellano, Samantha Pfister and Olivia Lynch.
