Jugend-forscht is a German science fair to encourage youth in STEM fields. After a long drive over arable paths, country roads and endless dead ends, we reached the Stadthalle Sindelfingen, where we were immediately spoiled with pretzels and drinks. At 11:30, the first members of the jury arrived and informed themselves with intrigue about our project. On the second day we had the honor to present our project to the public, press and sponsors. Our experience was crowned when we were awarded the second place: a fulfilling end to a few days of incredible experience and fun.
