There were a number of problems that our team had to overcome. The first and the foremost problem was understanding among the group members. It took us time to coordinate with each other and communicate fully. The next problem was the inadequate access to computers and internet. Very often the computers weren't free as the teachers of the school had to work.

Our project addresses high content standards with complete and brief information about the entire project. The pictures used and displayed are completely adequate and precise. The project fits well into the school and state guidelines as we are promoting the Festivals Of India by following all the rules and regulations of school. We learnt various new skills like website designing, new ways of project promotion and also HTML coding. The main group concepts practiced by us were leadership and ways of adjusting with the team members. Yes, using Internet has been a more effective method than traditional methods as it gave a variety of options to explore and discover about whatever aspect we want to.
