My name is Diogo Goncalves and I am a 17 year old Science and Technology student. I surf, skate, sail, practice kung fu and I’m finishing the conservatoire in cello this year. My main hobbies are electronics and informatics; I’m self-thought in these two areas and want to study them in the future as a professional career. After the Odysseus II contest I began teaching how to code in my school and I love the experience of sharing my knowledge with others.
I joined this contest mainly because I was tired of the daily routine and needed new experiences. After so much research in the fields of electronics and informatics, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to put my knowledge in practice.
Everything was amazing in its own way, even the most stressful situations became really amazing learning experiences.
I learned three important things while preparing this project. Schedule and plan, cooperate and never give up; even in the darkest of times.
Through this project we learnt many things about space and the economy around it and I would definitely consider working in the space industry!
