The lotto we designed ourselves, selected the pictures, wrote the notes to every symbol. Our computer teache ... Read more »

    After choosing the topic of our group project we will exchage project tasks with other schools participants. Every school group will work over its own project and will do some tasks for other 11 schools in 7 countries. Then we will create one big report of our Computer Chonichles Middle School team out of  the reports  made by every school-participant. You may have a look at the report made by the students of Koltsovo school #21 (Biotechnological lyceum #21) in 2007. It was devoted to the similarities and differences of some schools of the world.
