6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
Our project was directed to the world wide security and especially for the Romanian population which should be perfectly aware of the terrorist danger. Our idea was immediately supported by our school because it offers information for our school's students and also for the Romanian population. Each of us, the project collaborators, had a lot to learn from this experience; things like web searching, web design, more information about terrorists and the threat they represent. We helped each other every time we here in need of it. Our group acquired knowledge about terrorist danger and we changed our mentality about this continues threat. Terror Day has had a tremendous success in our school because of its variety of information and the things students can learn from it. We were aware of our school educational system and we have learned that we have an important influence as role models for the younger generation. Internet learning has been a lot more effective than traditional methods because students can find information faster on the internet.
