4. Problems We Had To Overcome
There were a lots of difficulties that we had to conquered. First of all, the popularity rate of Gogoro stores and stations is not balanced. You can find many Gogoro stations in Taipei or Taichung. However, in cities such as Douliou, there’s only one Gogoro charging station. Therefore, it is really hard for us to do our research. We have to go to Taipei or Taichung city to do the interview every time. Also, because theirs is no Gogoro store in Douliou, so it is really hard to find a Gogoro scooter on the road. Which, is really hard for us to collect data or information. Last but not least, We were almost running out of time, there’s only 5 of us in the team and we have a big exam coming. Therefore, every things have to be done as quick as possible and need to be efficient.
5. Our Project Sound Bite
To us, International Schools Cyberfair is an excellent competition that inspires students to try their best to make their own website and do research on a specific topic. When students are doing International Schools Cyberfair project, they are able to improve themselves, which is the most valuable value in International Schools Cyberfair.
