Croatian secondary-school students win silver and bronze at EU Science Olympiad

Croatian secondary-school students have won a silver and a bronze medal at the 14th European Union Science Olympiad (EUSO) that has just ended in Tartu, Estonia.

Croatia was represented by two three-member teams of talented natural science students, accompanied by three mentors from the Zagreb Faculty of Science.

Team A, consisting of Mirko Duvnjak, Vilim Lendvaj and Paula Vidas (all from Zagreb), won a silver medal, while Team B, including Tea Arvaj (Osijek), Luka Bulic Braculj (Split) and Noa Jelic Matosevic (Rijeka), captured a bronze.

The EUSO is an international competition of secondary-school students of up to 16 years of age in natural sciences. This year's competition took place from May 7 to 14, involving 300 students, divided into 50 teams, from 24 EU member states.

The attendance of the Croatian teams was financially supported by the Ministry of Science, Education and Sport.
