I have participated in several workshops on project Mascil, which gave me the opportunity to learn, to share ideas, approaches, experiences - to transform professional situations and real-life data in mathematical models. Within the MaSciL Project I developed the lesson "Maths Sweet" http://www.math.bas.bg/omi/mascil/task-mathsweets-bg.html I participated in: National Education Seminar, IMI-BAS, Sofia, 04.12.2015 with poster " Etudes with the Pick's Formula"; Annual Educational Conference, Sofia, 13-14.11.2015; Participation with Prize Excellent diploma of the conference "Dynamic Mathematics' with the performance" Mathematical dreams ", IMI-BAS, Sofia, 14.02.2015; National Scientix Conference, Sofia, 09.12.2014 with poster "Binary lessons as a pedagogical tehnologie"; National Education Seminar, IMI-BAS, Sofia, 08.12.2014 with article " The dialogues between Mathematics and Art"; National Education Seminar, IMI-BAS, Sofia, 17.12.2013 with article " The arbeloses "; National Education Seminar, IMI-BAS, Sofia, 19.12.2012 with article "From the wheel to the Kalofer lace"; International Scientific and Practical Conference KeyTTT, Stara Zagora, 22-24.09.2011 Pestalozzi Programme, Workshop DEMOCRACY IN BASIC EDUCATION, CoE 2013 1001-1004 FINLAND, 01 - 04.10.2013 Pestalozzi Programme, Workshop HOW TO DEVELOP INCLUSIVE SCHOOL CULTURE FOR SUPPORTING COOPERATION AND PARTICIPATION COMPETENCIES , CoE 2016 1024-1028 ESTONIA, 24 - 28.10.2016 I participated at HST 2015 CERN's program.
