About the event
A rocket stove employs simple principal concepts to create an efficient wood-burning apparatus. Fuel is burned inside a combustion chamber containing an insulated vertical chimney. Rocket stove designs are most often used for portable stoves for cooking but the design is also used to make mass heaters for heating buildings.
Learn to make a tin can rocket stove! Using recycled materials to make something useful is resourceful. Excellent for camping; not too bulky or heavy - they will fit well into a backpack! We'll use 5 cans and some tin snips to create a lasting product that competes against and may even outstrip your industrial camp stoves!
