2. Summary of Our Project
We will speak about Egyptian revolution. It was peaceful, white and attracts the attention of the whole world. We chose this topic to explain for the world what's really happen in it. We won't shed light on the political or economic side. But we are going to talk about traditions of Egyptian, what they had learned and what morals they get from it. One of presidents said about the revolution: 'There is nothing new in Egypt, Egyptian made history as usual'.

E. Additional comments concerning your computer and/or Internet access (Optional):
First: we took a training course at our school with Mr. Tarek and Mr. Mohamed. They touch us how to join Doors to Diplomacy competition, and helped us to know all rules and information about it. We didn't use the internet in our training course. When we finished the course we didn’t have to go to the school so we worked together in our homes and all the internet we used was in our homes..
4. Problems We Had To Overcome
The biggest problem we had to overcome was undocumented for all events which happened during the revolution. We couldn’t find document sources so, we had to get information and take photos with our selves. On the hand, English isn’t our first language so; we hardly translated our information by ourselves. Also we were very busy because of studying at school and exams. In addition to lack of security in our country which made us couldn’t meet.
5. Our Project Sound Bite
Barack Obama: (We must educate our children to become as young people of Egypt). Prime Minister of Italy: (There is nothing new in Egypt .The Egyptian people are making history as usual). We will not talk about the political side and economic side but we will go insides the people and see everything had happen with them in those days.
