I just wanted to say thank you a lot LMR for providing me a chance to discover the wonders of robotics and electronics. Before I found this website all I knew was how to change the batteries for a searchlight and now I have found my true hobby, my field of studies and, hopefully, future employment.
Few months ago I was given a chance to publish my project in an expo of youngster scientists and was even shown on a reportage about it on a national television.
Also, yesterday I came back from Lithuania's capital - Vilnius - where I presented my project and won a second place in the "European Union Young Scientist Competition".
My prize was 2 points to my competitive mark (it is a grade, that tells the average of your final exams) and such bonus is considered to be very desirable among high-school graduates, who I am. Also, my municipality is going to award me with some cash prize as well.
Moreover, as I later discovered, I should have won the first place, but since I am in the final year of my studies, the upcoming exams would have crossed with the further stages of the competition people proceed to if they make it to the top.
Therefore, I want to THANK YOU A LOT for chaning my life for the better. YOU ROCK!
This is me showing my project to the Education Minister of Lithuania.
p.s. sorry for my poor english and grammatical mistakes that are very likely to occur in such a long text ;D
