Thanks to Caleb, our school computer whizz, for helping us resize the pictures so we could post them here.

Thanks to Mrs Birt, teacher at Awapuni School, who worked with us and helped to learn more computer skills and about the research process. Thanks to her sons who helped her when we were putting it on the website.

Thanks to Di Das from Computers in Homes who suggested to Mrs Birt that this might be a project we would like to do.
