4. Problems We Had To Overcome
Lack of knowledge of Local Leader: Segamat district locates in an area of the plantation ecosystem which sets a comprehensive expression of tropical, subtropical, temperate representation in a compressed ecosystem. During the research process, we had to interview the plantation workers,estate peoples and searched information online as we realized that all of us had little knowledge about state ruler, Sultan Johor. Second is Lack of time for discussion and research: Being primary school students in the second year with heavy home work, we could only use our recess time after school to have discussion. Fortunately, our team members cooperated and collaborated to make every effort to minimize the negative impacts during the process, so that the research project produced great results. in addition Lack of experience in website production: This is our first time to participate in the CyberFair Project. We did not have any prior experience in website production. Whenever we met obstacles, we worked our best to find someone who was able to consult. There was much joy and setbacks during the research process. At the same time, Time limitation for interview: We confronted many restrictions in our interviews regarding this research project. The main challenge was the schedule to visit many places in Segamat, after school time.
