Optimizing Your Zeer Pot

Energy and Environmental Engineering

This project describes how to build a zeer pot and looks at how to possibly optimize conditions for its function. I chose this project to learn how to make a non-electric ""refrigerator"" to help prevent food from spoiling in a non-electric environment. I found my zeer pot was cooler (worked better) in breezy conditions and did not cool as well in humid conditions. This project could be important in helping people with no electricity to keep things cool, maybe to reduce food waste and hunger.
