*'''June 2007:''' Every year all school children in Norway are invited to take part in a great science competition called ''årets nysgjerrigper'' (The curious parker of the year). There is one main prize, but also 5 different prizes focusing on various aspects of the project. One of these prizes is the energy prize. A group of 13 pupils from 11 to 12 years old received the energy prize of 5000 kroner (about 500 pounds) for their solar cooking project in May 2007. The pupils go to the local public school, Byremo barneskole, in the county of Vest-Agder in Norway. At the moment they are working hard at translating the whole project report to English. When they are finished, the report will be published here.
