Title of Invention      :     The Hydro-Wind Generator

Description of Invention
This is an electric supplier that uses wind energy and the rainfall to generate electricity.
Basically, this generator uses the basic knowledge of Faraday’s Law, that is: the magnitude of
the E.M.F is directly proportional to the rate of change of magnetic flux. It means if a magnet is
slid inside a hundred turn copper coil, the magnet will produce a charge that will be converted
later to electricity.

Title of Invention                :   Georgian Solar Cooker

Description of Invention
The Georgian Solar Cooker is the perfect, portable, low-cost cooker made with recycled
materials. This solar cooker works on the concept of reflection of light. Sunlight is concentrated
in a cooking area by using mirrors or any reflective surface. The light from the sun will be
reflected to the pot. The cooker reflects light to a focal point just like a magnifying glass. The
heat from the sun will slowly cook the food kept inside the cooker.
