This month volunteers from New Acropolis visited again an orphanage in the village Doganovo, near the capital Sofia. The program that they organized was related to science subjects based on physics and chemistry. The children and the volunteers made many experiments, some of which – a volcanic eruption, inflation of a balloon from a bottle, “seeing” the sound. The children were very enthusiastic and very excited. We hope that in this way we have contributed to the increasement of their interest in this subjects and school projects.
