4. Problems We Had To Overcome

1.The topic is complicated and includes too many things to talk about. 2.As to the part of the aboriginal, we couldn't get too much help from the experts. 3.We almost couldn't complete the project because of a lack of union. 4.Too many extracurricular activities have occupied our time so that we couldn't concentrate ourselves on the project. 5.We don't have too many experiences of translation.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

We have learned how to use computers with better efficience. We also realize how important it is to co-operate with the team members on the same goal.

6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?

We relied on the Internet for getting information and contacting with one another. Through the project, likewise we've found treasury of something that might be lost or forgotten.

We had a visit to wedding costumes stores for extra help. We went to the Aboriginal Culture Park. We recalled people's memory of traditional culture.

3) What has been the impact of your project on your community?

We'd like to let everyone know that how important and solemn the marriage meant to people. The marriage represents responsibility and meanings behind its back.

4) How did your project involve other members of your community as helpers and volunteers?

The owners of the wedding costumes stores, our Chinese teacher Yu-ping Chang, the reporter Nancy Chen, and the newly-wedding couple all offered us a lot of help. We can have our project done because of them, and thanks a lot to them!
