I have always been attracted to science and how we can use it to change the face of the world around us. Odysseus challenged us to use both theoretical and practical knowledge to develop a concept for a new, innovational project. I found it very engaging and a good opportunity to share my ideas with scientists and teachers from all around Europe.
While preparing my project, it was very interesting talking to my teammate and coordinating teacher, sharing ideas and deciding which of them can be included in the project to make it shine. It was also engaging that in Odysseus we got the chance to express all of our opinions and thoughts about solutions to still unsolved problems from many scientific domains.
I tried to maintain the balance between science and creativity: It’s a very soft line between a work of a high scientific class and one that seems unrealizable, impossible. Also, another important aspect was to give a fresh, appealing look to our project and, following that, our presentation, through diagrams, pictures and animations.
In University, I want to pursue a degree in Physics. However, after participating in Odysseus, I have discovered many other interesting fields, related to both space science and Physics, that I would like to study, such as Biophysics or Environmental Physics.
