Congratulations to all the Award-winning projects!
Our appreciation goes both to our long-term members for their continued support, as well as to the new members, who have shown their commitment and enthusiasm in collaborating with schools across Asia and Europe. Most importantly, we thank all the students, who worked hard behind the scenes to turn the ideas into reality.

These online collaborations will either continue or begin with the new project idea in 2015.
