TRACES is again in the Bulgarian news

Interactive games with awards
Part of the TRACES team organized interactive games with awards during the Bulgarian Scientists Night (https://night.nauka.bg/). The participants (children and adults) were asked to guess which statements are true and which not and to comment on what made them make a certain hypothesis. All the participants had fun and learned new knowledge. The event also included a video presentation of the project (in Bulgarian).
After a kick-off meeting on March 2nd, the project TRACES has started.
