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

Information technology is one of the fastest ways to receive the newest information and understand this world. As computer is usually be thought as a relaxing material but learning material by students, we try to make them collecting information and doing the research through the internet. Furthermore, letting students doing this project with their own such as thinking their own question during the meeting, recording the information they received, making a visitation to the monuments, etc. This project makes improvements on not only the self management skill to students, but also gives them a wider view on this world. We hope we can give our best report to everyone through the Cyber Fair this year.
