In addition, the students stated that they want to build a time machine that facilitates transportation if they were a scientist. Furthermore, the number of students who want to discover a flying car and teleportation tool is higher than others. In general, it is seen that most of the student want to discover transport and technology related products. Most of the student state that their science interest has increased after the Project. Moreover, the number of students who realize the importance of science and increase their curiosity and desire to learn is also high.
