WEBSTER GROVES, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

Science teachers in Webster Groves have found a way to bring some sizzle into their classrooms, by teaching students how to make their own solar-powered cookers. 

Teachers Rob Rombach and Patrick Dempsey created the science project for their eighth-grade class and are also collaborating with students doing the same thing in Ghana.

"We know that by kids making building and designing, they can also learn to put science into practice," said Dempsey.
