2. Summary of Our Project
The theme for Cyber fair 2013 is ‘Explore and unite’. In our website, which is based on the category of environmental Awareness, we want to make acquainted with our plan, action, implementation and right efforts as of our social and moral responsibility. In this website, we show you know how our school Shree Gattu Vidyalaya managed to make aware the people and made them active participants of a noble cause to save the environment. We have developed a strong bond with the community to come forward helping each other, cooperating, fulfilling the needs and solving problems. This project may become an inspiration, innovation and lead towards collaboration.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome
For the first time we are participating in Cyber fair. We have the problems of how to present it in the form of website. We overcome it taking help from our principle and teachers. The problem of communication with people came to us. We sorted out giving the responsibility to each member. Every individual planned, thought, acted for making the awareness campaign successful. We divided the team in groups but we united to stand for our goal.
5. Our Project Sound Bite
We learn and realized how awareness can create impact on the people. We taught them, educate them and work together for green and clean Ankleshwar.
6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
We all worked together. We have to complete our academic work, still we meet regularly. We discussed and work on the project together. The school supported us in all ways. Our school works on the principle’s led down by Mahatma Gandhi and Swami Vivekananda, where we get the message of ’Live simple so that others can live simply’. We came up with new ideas and solutions. We practised and implemented it and contributed to the website. Our project is not only the notion but a way to travel long which will definitely make a difference.
