Join our paid ASU research study about using extreme heat! Our initial workshop is scheduled for Wednesday, May 18 at 5.30pm on the ASU Tempe Campus.
We are researchers in the School of Arts, Media, and Engineering at Arizona State University, looking at how heat can be utilized for sustainable outcomes. We are recruiting study participants who want to experiment with solar cooking over the summer.
We invite you to a solar cooker making workshop at the beginning of the summer. During the workshop, your will make low-cost solar cooker prototypes and brainstorm solar cooking recipes.
Over the summer, you will be asked to experiment with solar cooking recipes and share your solar cooking attempts (failed and successful). At the end of the summer, there may be a solar cooking potluck off campus.
Upon the completion of the study period (mid-August), select participants might also be invited for a semi-structured individual interview to go over their summer cooking experiences.
- $10 for each hour of your time during the workshop and interviews
- $15 for each solar meal, including failed attempts you share (10 maximum)
- $30 for attending the solar cooking potluck if one is organized, and bringing a solar-cooked dish to it
- up to $50 reimbursement for any materials you purchased to make a solar cooker if you provide receipts
No prior solar cooking experience is necessary, but you must be 18 years or older to participate.
The workshop, potluck, and interviews will be audio-recorded and photographed, and all data will be anonymized. If you are interested in participating, please contact Stacey Kuznetsov (firstname.lastname@example.org).
