The project activities were a prerequisite for us to continue our ambition to work and train in the field of MaSTs.
Our teamwork and acquaintance with students from different Bulgarian and Romanian schools helped to form new friendships. We presented our study manual "The Water in the World around Us" through chemical experiments and a presentation in Calarasi.
We have created a huge interest in the audience. We met the participants with the Bulgarian custom "Voditsi", through brief information and traditional Bulgarian costumes. Many participants in the project from Bulgaria and Romania were astonished by our interesting chemical experiments, which makes us even more ambitious.
They have expressed a desire to do it themselves. We felt satisfied with the task and the finished product. The time spent with our teachers and classmates was very enjoyable. We are grateful for the hospitality of the hosts and their warm attitude.

In the past 2018, I and my classmates were members of a team who set up three projects to make learning more comfortable and visual. The theme for the second exhibition was "Learning by Survey" by designing a project for a hydraulic machine and a car wash with water purification. The results of our hard work were shown in Veliko Tarnovo.
Personally, I was extremely excited about the fact that I would be able to defend the work of my school and gain interesting ideas from other teams, but my excitement doubled on the day that was set for the presentation itself to other participants from different cities and schools. I was pleased with the fact that the whole jury and the participants were presented in a more pleasant and accessible way for all of us. Meanwhile, we carefully monitored the performance of our colleagues in the project.
The long awaited moment came when the name of our high school sounded from the microphone. We unanimously appointed the person who would be presenting our work and his assistant who was changing the slides. It was up to me to shoot my classmates who were already proudly on the stage and were preparing the technique. Everything went well, and after a short break the jury introduced the tour to the tables to get a closer look at the projects.
When we came to our table, I knew we were all a little worried, but we were confident in our work, so with a smile on our face, we began to explain and demonstrate the created models and experimentations. The last project of our school was devoted to the production of cotton candy and when the white yarn of the wonderful sweet temptation came from the machine we created, the jury and the other watchers gasped. At the end of the day, we were all very happy with the successful job we had done and allowed to have fun with the other teams at the party evening with the nice program prepared by our hosts.
