1. Description of Our Team
Working with friend who pull on the same string has been part of the massive success of this project. At first we intended to work on the content went to design website then. One thing led to another and 6 months went by and we were almost ready to submit our project. This fortunate turn of events has lead us to present before you what you see. This project is entirely collective contributions of us. Karan (17) helped in setting up the website and designing it while Mohit (16) worked hard to gather content from different corners of the web.
2. Summary of Our Project
Albert Einstein is one of the greatest brains after Isaac Newton. He changed the way we looked at physics. His contributions sped up the pace of technology and took the world to entirely different era. This project is aimed to pay tribute to such a super-human because of which we’ve reached great heights in modern physics. This project shows the life and times of Einstein, his interests, education, contributions to science, felicitation. The insights of the great brain and the process that made it the way it was is shared with the viewers.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome
The main problem we had to face during this project was of “time”, which is a major issue. All the students have been busy with their academic schedule. But managed to balance their academics as well their online project also, very well by working late and utilizing their free classes to work on this project. The Willingness to work on such a great platform also motivated the students. We also had to face the technical challenges posed by web design. While uploading the content on the website, we faced the problem of word limit of data. Our content was exceeding the limit that is of 800 KB. So, we had to reduce the content part by reducing the number of topics. Also, the website proved to be recalcitrant and uncooperative at times, but with a little tinkering and a little assistance from the Help menu, everything worked! In spite of problems encountered, all the students managed to complete this project in the best way possible.
5. Our Project Sound Bite
This Online Project competition has taught all the students, about the efforts required in the making up of a website. Working as a team, how they will work in future in the open world was a new exposure for all of them.
6. How did your activities and research for this Doors to Diplomacy Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
Our project on Einstein is addressed to entire global community , each and every student of our school saying about 3600 of them were the part of this project , they participated in the various activities and competition conducted based on enactment of Einstein’s life this helped in generating scientific inclination in students. It also helps the teachers in making the teaching process more interesting and effective. Internet was indeed a boon for us during the project as we all could interact with each other on line.
