Romanian pupils awarded by NASA

The National American Space Administration (NASA) has awarded two teams of Bucharest pupils in a contest which was attended by youths from 12 countries. The young pupils were asked to come with proposals of adaptation of the supersonic aircrafts to passenger transport until 2020. The team Muraru Costin Grigore, Felix Liviu Milorad and Muraru Sebastian, pupils in the 9th grade of Tudor Vianu College from Bucharest, ranked on the first place in its category. The individual winner was a pupil from Singapour, Sidhart Krishnan. The team on the second place was also made of Romanian pupils from Tudor Vianu College, namely Vlad Adam, Ana Maria Borlovan, Roberta Raileanu and Sabina Zavoianu, also in the 9th grade. Third ranked a team from a high school in the capital of Greece. Over 120 high school pupils, who came with 60 proposals and registered in the four categories, were American and non-American teams and individual competitors (Ameri­can and non-American). The participants had to choose between two methods of joining the competition. They could either conceive a survey that would approach the challenges and the solutions offered by the supersonic flights, or propose a prototype of commercial supersonic aircraft operational in 2020. “All the concepts were full of imagination and innovative,” declared one of the researchers from NASA who analyzed the proposals coming from around the world. The evaluation was made subject to the extent to which the pupils drew up their documentation and the way in which they observed the basic criteria such as the documented content, creativity, imagination, organization and drafting.
