14 teams from Sarajevo and 10 teams from Banja Luka took part in the best science project competition. It was not an easy job for the jury to select the best out of very innovative and imaginative projects. After long voting, “Solar sunflower” from Sarajevo and “Vibrations tras tres” from Banja Luka took the winning positions.
