Tanzania School Experiments with Solar Cookers


From teacher Mr. Jared, at the Dinka School in Arusha Tanzania: “…We are really gaining a lot and enabling our learners to be part of problems solvers within our society.” “We have had a wonderful experience with the solar cookers donated to us [in our dung patty wisdom exchange] by students from the US during the ethical exchange program of the full circle learning. Tanzania being between the tropics and in fact next to the equator from between 5 and 15 degrees south of the equator experiences a lot of sunshine throughout the year. This makes the use of solar cooker very convenient to use also considering the long hours of sunshine per day.” “This is a very good undertaking owing to the fact that by using sunshine we will save and conserve the environment since the use of sunlight does not pollute the environment. I think that in our next ethical village day we will embark on educating the mass on the use of solar for cooking. “ “Our sincere thanks comes to all who made this possible for we are really gaining a lot and enabling our learners to be part of problems solvers within our society. “ “The pictures below show our kids using the solar cookers and taking the temperature change as the water gets hot in preparation for a cooking demonstration.”
