We would like to thank following for their endless help in making this Investigatory Project: a. Our Parents who are always there to guide and support us in all our activities, encouraging us to do more and to give more of ourselves. b. Our teacher, Ms. Neis who is always there nourishing our hunger for curiosity, allowing us to submit some chapters even late. c. Friends and classmates who keep us alive all the time.
d. Lastly, to our Creator, who gave all this talents, skills, knowledge and many more that we have used in making this Investigatory Project possible
This study aimed to find out if an old shoebox and a thick tin foil can be converted to amore useful piece of cooking equipment.The feasibility of reflective solar heated grillthat is built from a cardboard box, tin foil, and posterboard as an alternative cookingequipment was studied in this research project. The cardboard box was cut andshaped.the tin foil is settled in the middle making it looks like a slide.we go outside inthe heat of the sun. the barbeque sticks were placed in the spot where reflection of thesunlight focuses on the hotdog .just like a real skewer the hotdog were cooked therefor minutes.tasted it.and voila.real hotdogs on stick just like mom used to cook.

DISCUSSION OF RESULTS
A solar heated grill can be built from a cardboard box, tin foil, and posterboard. Sunlighthits the reflective surface and focuses on the hot dog held in the center. Students canwork in pairs or individually if there are enough materials.This is a parabolic cooker we built a while ago, so unfortunately we can't show step bystep photos of it's construction. However, it's relatively easy to see how it was puttogether.It makes a great Physics project. Unlike most, you'll actually get some use out of itafterwards. Some of the principles it demonstrates are: 1. Optics: focusing parallel rays of incident light through the use of a parabolic mirror. 2. Energy transformation: light to heat
3. Renewable energy: solar power
This study thru physics aims to find out if an old shoe carton box can be useful to makean alternative cooking machine.
SIGNIFICANCE OF THE STUDY
This study aims to find out if an old shoe carton box can be useful to make analternative cooking machine.player is significant to different sectors for various reasons:· Serve as an eye-opener for those who don·t have a grill in their backyard who want toconvert their old shoe box carton into a hotdog grilling machine.· Provide information to students and teachers with respect to the recycling of cartonbox or old shoe box. Serve as motivating factor for the schools or institutions to direct their students and tofurther strengthen their capabilities for developing old carton box into a cooking grilland other processes to maximize the recycling of old carton box.Furthermore, the outcome of the study will provide empirically ² based information topolicy makers in Ecological recycled Waste Management. (RA 9003) junk cartons areusually stocked or thrown out elsewhere .Converting these non-functional cartons doesnot only support RA 9003 but it...
