sure that tasks are described in great detail and adequate for school kids. This and mentoring
youngsters means *a lot* of work and can be done wrong in so many ways and ruin the participants'
experience, which we do not want.
Are there lists of sample (preferably successful)  tasks from past years 
somewhere?  I think that would help a lot to improve  understanding of 
what is required.
