Pringles Can Solar Hot Dog Cooker

Trouble was recently tasked with making something having to do with solar energy. After some indepth research googling around he decided to create a solar hot dog cooker made from a Pringles can. Honestly, I think he was drawn to the idea of eating an entire can of chips and a hot dog for homework. We found some super simple directions here and got to work.
I helped cut an opening in the can making two flaps for Trouble to fold back. Trouble taped some clear plastic over the window. Next he poked a hole in both ends of the can to hold a skewer. The hot dog gets loaded on the wooden skewer and inserted into the Pringles oven. 

Trouble found a sunny spot to cook the dog and let the sun do its thing.

After about 30 minutes Trouble noticed that the inside of the can had steamed up.

He checked the hot dog to make sure it was heated to his liking.

 Apparently it was the perfect temperature, that or he was hungry. He was so very proud to have used the sun to cook his lunch!
