4. Problems We Had To Overcome
In this project, we have overcome the following difficulties. 1.Because coming from diffirent classes, it is difficult for us to get together discussing our project at school. So we have to use the lunch break and weekends to complete our works. 2. Transportation from our school to Lotus Lake is also a big problem. We went to Lotus Lake us almost by bike or by bus occasionally. 3. We are not good enough at conducting interviews, designing questionnaires, taking photographs and tape-recording. But with the instructions , the teacher’s help and offen discussing together, we overcame a lot of technical problems. 4.Not enough time:Because we didn’t know the news of International Schools CyberFair till January. We have to complete this project just about in one or two months.That is pretty rushing! So we spent the last time we got co-working,discussing together and trying our best to make our project more complete.
