Project Elements

1) What information tools & technologies did you used to complete your Doors to Diplomacy project?

The data collection was done online. Online data collection was an easy task.

2) In what ways did you act as "ambassadors" and spokespersons for your Doors to Diplomacy project both on-line and in person.

We have created a website to act as online ambassadors.

3) What has been the impact of your project on your community?

The website will create awareness in our community about the international affairs. It will serve as a reference material. Each One Plant One is the slogan of our school's Chairman Dr. A. F. Pinto. Every year, we celebrate environment week. The website will become one stop destination for other students to do data collection during environment week.

4) How did your project involve other members of your community as helpers and volunteers?

The original team members Ms. Dhanashree and Ms. Harshita provided their valuable guidance and shared their experiences. We got guidance and moral support from our parents and teachers.

5) Discoveries, Lessons and Surprises (Optional)

Online research proved to be easier and faster than traditional library research.
