I like your project`s idea and how you`ve made it. I have my project on a developing station, the idea is to educate kids about bullying issues, but I want to create a course using technical abilities. I have read some articles from and I decided that it would be better accepted by students when the course would be modern and interactive. So, I am looking for some ideas to light the points which were shown in those free essay samples.
