This is our solar oven, inside we have a lot of newspaper and aluminum foil. We made a shelves out of Popsicle sticks. We rested some more Popsicle sticks with a black dot on top of the shelves to make the heat all go into one place. Then we made a good angle for the lid and put 2 layers of plastic wrap on top of the hole of the box. We added aluminum foil on the lid so the heat would bounce off of it and go onto the quesadilla.
The difference of kinetic energy and thermal energy is that thermal energy is transfer due to the temperature. They can transfer from conduction, convection, or radiation.
Thermal energy is transferred from hot places to cold places by convection.
This happens when a hot solid, liquid, or gas goes to a cold solid, liquid, or gas.
Bil Nye shows in this video how kinetic energy makes thermal energy and also shows about convection, radiation, conduction.
