Islander Middle School sixth-grade students have been researching and building solar ovens this spring. The students have been waiting for weeks for the sun to come out to test their ovens.

On Monday, June 3, as the skies cleared, it looked as if space debris was littering the IMS campus as the ovens were set up. The sun warmed the test site to complete the tests, and one oven got up to 200 degrees.
