I am currently a student at the Gymnázium Špitálská, Prague 9 (grammar/high school)
Olympiads and Contests:
I have been interested in space, physics, astronomy and science for some time and since i had a chance with this contest I could not refuse it. I wanted to make a project and research and this was a great opportunity and a big challenge at the same time. I wanted to meet new students, who are also interested in space, and share together new ideas and our research results. And the prizes were atempting as well – a trip to French Guiana, who would not want to go.
I think that what I really enjoyed the most was the communication and cooperation with NASA. They helped us with our project and it was exciting. I also enjoyed when we found and observed in the pictures our first asteroid and possibly discovered new one.
The most important thing I learned was that cooperation and communication in team and with other people is very, very important. Nowadays, a person must cooperate with a lot of different people when he wants to discover something new, he cannot do it alone. Having enough time and a good preparation is very important too.
I already knewn that I want to study some technical or physical field at university. During our project I discovered a lot of new space science branches, but however I still do not know what exactly I want to study, but I want to get involved with the space science field.
