To enter the competition, everyone had to go through several stages of selection from the Academy of Sciences and got the chance to represent Ukraine at the international level. Once the jury approved the scientific project, participants prepared documents and got ready for the competition. In general, the trip to Lyon was extremely amusing and useful. Besides the competition, we toured the city and museums.”
