Going in, the only thing I knew about Armenia was that it was south of Georgia and that it was the first Christian nation. I learned a couple of more things while there.
Last year Maia and Nana, our biology and chemistry teachers, organized a school trip to the Ilia State University Science Picnic, Georgia’s first and only outdoor science fair. Fortunately, I’d already made my interest in science known and I was invited along. The teachers wanted to inspire the students enough that our school could present next year, which is to say, this year. And we did.
