4. Problems We Had To Overcome
The students who worked for this CyberFair project had problems creating the site. The students found it really hard because they weren't able to find time to focus on this project alone since they belong to the Special Science Curriculum and they are graduating students. The project is due on the graduation day of the students. They had to push the limits and really tried their best to participate in this activity.

Beat the odds. Shine bright like a diamond.
6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
The Cyberfair is where we applied the things we have gained knowledge from the subjects namely Research, Journalism, Language, and Computer Education. Photo enhancement, web designing, grammar, and photography were developed and enhanced during the creation of the project.
Also, the project enabled us to socialize with other people around our province. It has taught us to search more knowledge patiently.
