4. Problems We Had To Overcome
When students had free time, the computer lab was occupied. When lab was free, the students were busy in exams. So there was mismatch of free time. To overcome this problem, some computer work was done at home. It was decided to have at least one meeting in a week.
5. Our Project Sound Bite
Our students got an opportunity to publish their work at international level by participating in the Cyber Fair competition.
