Perhaps starting a five-hour bus journey at ten past five and doing schoolwork from nine to half five Wednesday through Saturday isn’t to everyone’s taste.
However, the BY Young Scientist competition was so worth it. I’m in the train right now, on my way home after four of the best days I’ve ever spent surrounded by science. Nerve wracking though the judges’ meetings were, the number of people interested in our project was awe inspiring. We were not expecting the appreciation… or the prize! We received the HP Innovation for Good award.
Due to the amazingly positive response to our project, we have decided to continue improving it and intend to enter it into other science competitions.
I’ll upload a picture of our trophy soon, as well as my photo of the American astronaut Dan Tani.
