Project Elements

1) What information tools & technologies did you used to complete your CyberFair project?

We used the computer software named 'Dreamweaver 8' for this project.It has helped us a lot when building the website.No tools were donated by businesses or schools.Our most valuable tool was our web site development program since we couldn't do anything without it.

We were all ambassadors when we were preparing this project.

We had a lot of advice from: Our teacher The people of whose sites we have used Domain hosters.
