What motivated you most to participate to Odysseus contest?

Making a project and then presenting it on an international level and compete with people from other countries. Also learning new things during the process of making the project and with its presenting.

What did you enjoy when you prepared your project?

Making things work, with other members of my team and also with people from all around the world, even from NASA. This was really a great experience.

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

There is nothing better than the moment when everything is working as it should, but it is not always easy or manageable. Sometimes, everything can go wrong, even things you could not expect to. Also, coming up with a good idea and putting great effort to it is one part, presenting it is completely different one and both are equally important.

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

It reassured me that science and technical fields are great and combining it with space is one of the coolest things I can imagine and really worth studying and spending life with.
