The South Pole is about 8,990 miles from any library in Washington, DC but you can get a sense of what it's like to live there and cook food using a solar oven.  There will be presentations on this subject at the Chevy Chase Public Library and the Tenleytown Public Library on Wednesday, June 29.  Here are the details:

Cooking in Antarctica: Make Your Own Solar Oven

Learn what it takes to survive in Antarctica. Physics teacher Katey Shirey shares stories and video from her recent trip to the South Pole to work on the IceCube neutrino research project. She'll teach kids to construct their own pizza box solar oven to capture infrared radiation and cook solar s'mores.

Intended for children ages 8 - 12.
