6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
We actually had to make a very specific research. The most interesting part was to enter the plant grounds to learn about the details of industry itself. Students got an opportunity to meet with constructors, workers and managers of the factory. It's an amazing experience. Children also had to negotiate with top plant's management to set the excursion to the plant and of course they worked as researchers and then as professional translators and enterpretors. They also enriched their skills as website designers.It fits our school program perfectly.
