Junior scientists J.D. Miller, Hannah Carlson, Gracie Hatheway, Garth Knutson, and Michael James are assembling solar ovens in the library of Cedaredge Elementary School.
"You have to earn your way into this class," student Michael James said as he continued to work on his own solar oven.
Volunteers and mentors Lee Lang and Larry John lead a small group of fourth and fifth grade boys and girls in experimental science and math projects once a week, for an hour, usually on Tuesdays.
