Mount Bromo is located in the Bromo Tengger Semeru National Park in East Java. It is unique with sea sand area of 5250 hectares at an altitude of 2392 m above sea level. Bromo is an active volcano and well-known as a tourist icon of East Java. The mountain is not as big as the other volcanoes in Indonesia but it has a spectacular scenery. The beauty of the mountain range which lies between Mount Bromo and Mount Semeru which is called incredible Mount Pananjakan makes tourists who visit will be amazed. From the top of Mount Penanjakan at an altitude of 2,770 m, tourists from all over the world come to see the beauty of the sunrise at Mount Bromo. In addition, it has a vast expanse of sand Bromo and the Tengger tribe uniqueness still holds the tradition that is never lost.Indonesia is an archipelago, with an incredible natural beauty. Awarded a landscape that seemed never-ending. From the west end to the east, a row of mountains, valleys, seas, lakes, national parks to wait to be explored. Indonesia is surrounded by 127 volcanoes, so that is Indonesia called Ring of Fire country, one of which is located in Mount Bromo in East Java.

So, they will realize to be more aware and care about the natural conservation in Indonesia. By having many tourist, come to visit Bromo,local people can live more prosperously and Bromo will be more famous.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome

The problem that we need to overcome during making this project is selecting the best topic category of eight categories and finding the clear information about our topic. Beside that, we also have problem with time management because every second week of the month we have religion support, so our meeting will be only 1 hour 30 minutes.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

This project improves our knowledge about the natural beauty of Indonesia. It makes us proud of our country. Through this project we expect that many tourists from other country visit the magnificent beautiful sunrise from the top of the mountain with fresh air, green scenery, wonderful waterfall, and Ijen crater.

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

This activities and research are collaborative learning related to our Social Study, Computer lesson, and History. Our school uses a National curriculum integrates with an Entrepreneurship curriculum. In the Entrepreneurship curriculum, we learn how to promote Indonesian's tourism resorts by building the website and publish our project using internet. Because if we use internet there will be more people who see and read rather than if we write it in a book or poster which has limited access.
