Let's start at the end - with the gold medalists, quite simply because a group photo of them celebrating their success seems suitable to open today's post. What follows are photos from the inspiring lecture of '96 Nobel Prize Winner Harry Kroto, some additional scenes from the closing ceremony and a group portrait of our team for the very end.
|In case the above photograph isn't self-evident enough, a caption might help: Harry Kroto won the Nobel prize for his research on fullerenes|
|"Thinking is dangerous." Additional caption needed?|
And here comes the closing ceremony:
|...Speeches - Jaak Aaviksoo, Estonian minister of Education & Research|
|Prof. Maija Ahtee being presented an award for outstanding achievements in physics education|
|Competitors going onstage to collect their awards|
And last, but not least, a group portrait of our team (minus me) with our guide, Teisi, somewhere in the highest floors of Viru Hotel in Tallinn.
