Emilia Marinova


My name is Emilia Marinova and I’m from Varna, Bulgaria. I’m 18 years old and I study German and English at First Language School in Varna. My main interests include astronomy, sports and music.

What motivated you most to participate to Odysseus contest?

I found the topic very interesting and we thought that this contest will be a fun way to expand our knowledge not only in astronomy, but in physics as well.

What did you enjoy when you prepared your project?

At the very beginning of the project we had a completely different idea of what the subject of our project will be. Later on, we discovered many different aspects of the subject we had chosen and we decided to make our project about the Water worlds, which we find very interesting.

What was the most important thing that you learned during the preparation of your project?

We learned many new things in both astronomy and physics, but for me the most important was that you can explain a certain event in many different ways and through many different factors. I think that’s exactly what makes science so exciting.

Has the work done for your project affected your decision for studies in space science?

I’ve never had plans to study space science and this contest hasn’t affected my decision, but it was an experience that I find very useful and I think that it is very important for every person to learn something new every day and expand their interests in every aspect of life.
