Measure all four sides of the styrofoam box to figure out how wide the reflective cardboard panels need to be. Make sure to be as precise as possible when measuring the panels for the box because they will be one of the most important parts of the solar thermal cooker. Make sure all sides are congruent in length and width. Also on where they will be put on the box in order to put them on as evenly as possible. Once all the four sides are measured to the box as evenly as possible. Measure the best angle to your connivence and cut out from a separate cardboard box and connect those two angles with the rest of the panels to create a sort of U shape on top of the box cooker.
