We’d like to give big thanks and our great appreciation to:
- all students and teachers who worked on their projects and submitted reports
- country coordinators that gave them a support

Big congratulation to students and teacher Sandra Milek from Daruvar!
IVSS is a great opportunity how to share results of student projects and inspire each other. You can see all the projects submitted at 2020 Virtual Science Symposium Reports
