Jon Bohmer

Jon made an oven using foil, cardboard, black paint, and some sunlight. This only is $5 to make. This gets hot enough to boil water and cook food! People in the country had to boil water to get all the germs out and took a long time so this helped a lot. This was easier to heat things up. Jon made another oven with recycled plastics which helped the environment a lot.
