Title: Design and Development of a Low Cost, Multifunction, Regionally Appropriate Solar Oven for Developing Countries in Latin America

The objective of this study is to design and develop a series of solar ovens that can be mass-produced at low cost using the capital, labor and materials that are typically available in Latin American nations. The widespread adoption of such ovens can also reduce wood consumption in these nations, alleviating the deforestation and soil erosion that arise from the overharvesting of this resource. Finally, by designing such ovens from locally available materials using local labor and capital, a positive economic impact is made in the community.
