4. Problems We Had To Overcome
When we are trying to get the open source data from the Website, we found out that they didn't update the date up to date. If the data is up-to-date, it will help our App Design to be more accurate and useful for the people who need it. Therefore, we asked computer and technology teacher to help us with the design of the Smartphone Application and she suggested us that we can use those data then and once the date get updated, we will replace the old data with the new ones.

This International Schools CyberFair project keeps high standards as a research project. By reviewing other schools' project sites, we have good models to follow and they will try to outperform those previous projects. In Taiwan, English is not spoken in our daily life.
