Students from Turkish schools in Romania impress in the “First Step” science project competition.
A total of 329 have competed in the competition, presenting 245 projects in the categories of energy, environment, design and interactive learning.
With a high number of successful projects on display, the experts forming the jury had a tough time picking the winners. A total of 75 students received awards, worth €8,000 each.
One notable contestant was, Yasemine Gerea, the daughter of Romanian Economy Minister Andrei Gerea, who along with her friend Deniz Erol represented their model roller-coaster in the competition.
Expressing that they have prepared their project by spending 5 to 6 hours in a day, Yasemine Gerea said “We wanted people to know more about internal structure of a roller coaster. The project costs €40.”
Attending prize-giving ceremony, Andrei Gerea congratulated Turkish schools for their contribution to Romania’s education system. “It should not be forgotten that education is the guarantee of future and the base of innovations of our life, which make easier,” she added.
The successful projects succeed in the competition will represent Romania in an international science and technology competition.
