Nominee from Gävleborg-Dalarna

In April 2008 the two best entries were selected and awarded. Six girls from the “Soltorgsgymnasiet” in Borlänge won the first prize for their poster “Afforestation of impoverished land”. They were invited to the regional Energy and Climate Conference in Borlänge where their winning contributions were exhibited.

Scientist School in Dalarna

At the end of 2007, the Gävle Dala Energikontor (GDE) in cooperation with the Högskolan Dalarna invited eight upper technical and natural science schools to take part in research projects during the “Scientist School”. These special days are annually organised  by the regional university in order to increase the adolescents’ interest in scientific matters and encourage them to enrol in further technically oriented studies. Approximately 300 students participated in research projects on sustainable energy and finally contributed 48 results which were illustrated on posters.
