4. Problems We Had To Overcome
Since all of the members are graduating and under the Special Science Class Curriculum, time allotted in making the task is the biggest problem we can consider. Special Science Class Students or also known as “SP Students”, have hectic schedule and most of them are involved in several National and Regional Competitions. Also, graduating students have to meet their requirements earlier than the deadline. The only time we can work in this project is our free time in our homes or weekends in the computer laboratory of the school. The good thing is most of the members have internet access in their homes, so it is easy for us to communicate with each other in such a way that, the assigned task for each members are sent via e-mails and compiled by the team leader.
Despite of all these trials and obstacles, we have managed to finish the project on time. Throughout the duration of this project, we didn’t only gave a legacy to our school as the set of students who brought the official website to the school but also we have learned virtues like cooperation, teamwork, patience and time management. We would also like to thank our teachers for the understanding and consideration while making the project and our classmates-turned-typists for their willingness to help us.
5. Our Project Sound Bite
We believe we can achieve not merely to recieve nor excel but achieve and excel to unite.
6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
The Cyberfair is the application of the things we have learned in the four corners of the classroom in the subjects namely Research, Journalism and Computer Education. Photo editing, web designing, and photography were the knowledge and skills that were developed through the duration of the project.
Also, intrapersonal relationship of each member was developed. This project also taught us the proper way of approaching people in interviewing and gathering information that may be possible to be used in the website. These character-formation values could be applied in the future as professionals.
