Frankly speaking, I liked the STEM tournament because of the process of discussing ideas. We managed to unite all our opinions and thoughts to create something really amazing — our idea. Moreover, the project gave us a chance to learn some new things related to modern technologies. I also found the task to be rather creative.

To succeed in this new information-based and highly technological society, students need to develop their capabilities in STEM to levels much beyond what was considered acceptable in the past.” (National Science Foundation)
