Project Elements

1) What information tools & technologies did you used to complete your CyberFair project?

Our main research facility for this project was the Internet. Our project is netirely presented as a webpage, so it can be accessed universally.

2) In what ways did you act as "ambassadors" and spokespersons for your CyberFair project both on-line and in person.

Our aim was to show people around the world what terrorism had done in the past, and what its capabilities are today.

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

Our project may not be that influencial in our local community, but it was designed to raise awareness internationally.

Our society and environment teacher, Mr Hill gave us direction and helped us with our organisation. He also helped us with our design.
