What is Robot-Laborant and how it was created? Tamo and her team members were concerned about the fact that most children do not have access to the scientific laboratories, what hinders the process of studying natural sciences.

“We wanted to establish the real, remotely controlled laboratory. Then we perfected this idea with the help of our mentor and started working on it. We wanted to help those students who have limited possibilities or live in remote places to get education not only through books or internet, but conducting research and experiments.

What makes our devise innovative is that it enables students to conduct the researches in the fields of physics, chemistry and biology from any part of the world remotely.

According to 17 years old inventor, working on the project was quite was difficult and yet very interesting.

"Implementation of any project is connected with many obstacles and of course we also faced some problems, but gradually we managed to solve them and complete the project. Since we are interested in science and innovations, we found out about the project “Millennium Innovation Competition” long time ago. We wanted to take part before, and eventually we came up with “Robot-Laborant.” It is impossible to achieve success without teamwork and mutual understanding between the teammates. Accordingly, cooperation was the key to our success while working on the project,” Tamo says.
