Statoil wishes to stimulate interest in and boost motivation for science and technology subjects. Each year, Statoil invites second-year upper secondary school students in Norway to take part in a science competition.
This year's winners of the competition are Petter Taule, Tollak Braaten and Petter Reistad from Nadderud Upper Secondary School in Bærum and Joachim Reisersen, Kenneth André Sydness and Simen-Andreas Gjerde from Skeisvang Upper Secondary School in Haugesund. (Photo: Harald Pettersen, Statoil)
The assignment is prepared in line with the national physics and chemistry curriculum and may be used, for instance, as a project in the ordinary lessons.
Statoil’s Natural Science Award is a part of the Heroes of Tomorrow sponsorship programme.
The competition is a collaboration between Statoil and six regional science centres in Norway and has been an annual event since 2002.
For the natural science competition, Statoil divides the country into four regions, and participants first compete on a regional level. The two best entries will then be declared national winners.
This year’s first prize is NOK 50 000 for the class of the winning student. The money will be spent on a scientific excursion or similar. The individual winners will also receive a helicopter trip to a North Sea facility.
