I am 16 years old and from the United States. I first heard of
the Thinkquest competition through my school. My interest in Physics
came from the Physics class that I was taking in school last year. Around
the time that we had to sign up for Thinkquest, we were working on Optics
in my Physics class. I realized how difficult it was to really understand
Optics, and thought that the idea of building an Optics web site that
could serve as a learning course was excellent.
We had to overcome many challenges in forming this web site. In
a relatively short amount of time, we had to write our articles, translate
them, and design a web site that would be easy for a user to work with.
The distance that we are from each other made working together extremely
difficult, but the Internet and its creations allowed us to cross over
and communicate with each other.
