At our school, the Ricks Center in Colorado, the ThinkQuest contest is slowly but surely becoming a tradition. After learning website design and graphics software, we were ready to start our ThinkQuest site. We brainstormed ideas on what we each wanted to do, and then we spent days trying to find a common ground between them. One day it happened. "What about Japan?" somebody said. It was then, though we may not have known it, that we began a project which turned out to be an adventure. Through numerous computer problems and many after-school sessions we worked, and now it has all paid off. Presenting:
JAPAN AND US.
When the idea of calling the site "Japan and Us" came up, we were skeptical. Some of us didn't know how that might go over. But after we thought about it we realized that it made a lot of sense. We made this website to educate others about Japan, its culture, its ideas, and how similar this land surrounded with mystique and wonder is to our own. We ended up doing more than just creating a website for others to learn from: we created a website that taught more than we thought it would. We now have an extented knowledge of Japan, and we have come to be fascinated with this great nation. We hope that all the great things that we took away from this experience will now be passed to you.
