The preparation for this year’s IYNT started right after the SYNT, when the team was announced and gathered for a first meeting with parents, to discuss the logistics. Another five meetings with the whole team later, and many more individual meetings of coaches and participants, we gathered for the final preparation, before leaving for the Belarusian capital Minsk, where the IYNT 2019 was taking place. 

On the final day of preparation, everyone gathered bringing along their suitcases. Final experiments were done, and the presentations were improved further. After some final training on how to prepare an opposition, we headed for the airport to check-in the luggage. This allowed everyone to sleep a little longer on Sunday morning, before meeting again at Zurich airport.
