Our team won the OIB Special Awards during Turkey’s Innovation Week Ceremony. We were the only high school that competed in Shell Eco-marathon Turkey. Besides, Terakki has been participating in Shell Eco-marathon since 2005. I was very excited for the ceremony because the event was very crowded and there were cameras all over the place. I held our cup on the stage with one of the team members, Ege. With this special award, we won two cups during the Innovation week; the other cup was for the “Team Spirit” award. This was on the news in many media platforms. I am really happy for being a part of Shell Eco-marathon and Team Terakki.
After the ceremony, Mr. Bahtiyar asked me to wait in our stand in the exposition area. It was just like the Mini Maker Faire event. I answered the questions of the visitors and informed them about our team. During the spare times, I could visit the exposition and see/investigate the other projects in the exposition.
