After losing touch with each other during the war, best friends Hilda, Hristina, Veska and Ceca found one another again 50 years later, when Hilda’s blast-from-the-past phone call almost gave Hristina a heart attack. Those ladies have now known each other for nearly 70 years, and in Hilda and Hristina’s case – 76 years! It is kind of incredible that spending just a couple of years together, here at ACS, they managed to grow so fond of each other. Or as Hristina’s husband had jokingly put it: “This American College of yours! I really don’t understand how you can talk for more than 50 years about something that only lasted less than 5!”

Ivana, Misho, and Tsveta ’16 on FISSION: Critical Thinking and Team Work – That’s What Science Is All About
February 16, 2016 by American College of Sofia
Science is all about critical thinking and team work because it is impossible for a single person to be an expert in all the different areas of science. One of the goals of FISSION is to give Bulgarian students the opportunity to develop precisely those qualities and skills. Interacting with other EUSO participants, I found out that students in other EU countries have more opportunities to work on independent scientific projects than students at most Bulgarian schools. FISSION aims to become a platform through which Bulgarian students will be able to conduct their own scientific research, meet peers who are interested in science, and be inspired by our jury members and lecturers who will offer their support for the projects. The fair will motivate students to seek the application of theoretical ideas in practice, to envision the future of their projects beyond the presentation in March, and to be not only scientists but also entrepreneurs.
