4. Problems We Had To Overcome
We faced many problems in the course of doing this project. The most imperative and the very first problem we faced was choosing the right topic. The members were divided and debated this issue for several long days. Finally, we all agreed to a common topic through a vote and a thorough analysis of each topic.
Apart from choosing the topic, there were some other pressing problems too. Firstly, time management become a prime source of stress for us. As most of our members would be taking our O level exams this year, we found little time to accomplish the tedious task presented to us. However, with the continous support from both of teachers and fellow students, we were able to make it. Moreover, cyberfair is a very prestigous competition and that compelled us further.
5. Our Project Sound Bite
We are proud to be able to participate in a competition as renowned as Cyberfair. Amongst the fierce comeptition, we believe that our school will be proud of us even if we do not emerge as eventual winners as they know we have tried our best.
