    Go Ukraine Youth! Show them your ‘stuff’!!

    I particularly like the Project by 17 year old Mykyta Hordiyenko of Kyiv: “Am_I_Fatigued – How to discover accumulated fatigue and eliminate the consequences” as this may directly impact my work in the Human Services/Behavioural Health Sciences/Mental Health field.

    13 year old Polina Khadeyeva of Odesa is simply TOO CUTE to ignore! :) Her project on ‘Photometric examination of asteroid 2012 LC1’ is WAY beyond my comprehension, however, she wouldn’t be a Finalist without serious credentials behind it … at 13!?!?! :) Her smile melts me already – whatever facts are relevant! :)

    Admittedly, I confess I do not claim to understand 15 year old Danylo Kuznetsov’s project: “Use of properties of heliosynchronous orbits for terraformation using materials easily accessible in the cosmos.” However, I am quite fond of ‘The Cosmos’, happy to reside here, and am sure to learn from him! Maybe Dnipro will host Eurovision 2017!?

    15 year old Anton Tykhenko of Lubny seems to have quite a handle on something Ukraine Soldiers may benefit from. I can’t help but wonder what inspired his project: ‘Functional hand prostheses for patients with ectrodactyly’?

    Again, Ukraine, you continue to WOW the Planet, Our Universe and The Cosmos! … again… with Your Children! :) Children are Our Future! Continue WOWing us, Ukraine and Children of Ukraine! We love it!! Best of Luck and Great Good Fortune to all 4 Finalists and all who participated! Show the World your ‘stuff’!

    Slava Ukraine!

    Slava The Children!!
