We came with a lot of ideas about what the topic of the website should be, and we all agreed upon "High-Tech: Robotics", a subject we did not know we all have an interest in, big or small. We all discussed about what the website should contain and on how it should look like. When we had to divide our tasks, it was very easy, because Carmen was very good at programming, and has a passion for web design, so she made her part of job very well. Catalin accepted to do the content of the website, which was a very challenging and demanding task, and our future architect, Anca, got herself busy with the sketches, images and the layout of the website. We always confronted our work, gave each other advices, and kept each other up-to-date with everything we worked on.
When we came with the idea of interviews, everyone was thrilled to do it. We thought listening to what other people think about our website`s theme would be an interesting and exciting experience.
We know it is important to be informed, but also to have practical experience, so in our researches we even tried to visit industrial sites in our town or in the vicinity of the area that use industrial robots, but we only found manually operated devices, and the only robotic device we could entertain ourselves with were toy robots.We also faced the problem of the images. We wanted our project to be one of a kind, so we thought the best way is to gather information on how a certain type of robot should theoretically look, and sketch them.
As we mentioned in "Team collaboration", the diversity of our team made the creation of this website possible. When Carmen came up with the idea of participating at the contest, the other members did not show much enthusiasm, because they had other skills, ideas, future plans, interests. But when we started discussing this project, we ended up looking for themes for the website. Soon, everyone started to find his place in this project, and was eager to begin working on it.
Carmen is very good at web programming, so she was happy with doing this part of the website. Catalin, future doctor, loves to do essays so he enjoyed gathering materials for the website`s content, thinking it would be a great way to learn new things, especially in an area where he had almost no experience. Anca, having plans of becoming an architect, was delighted to do the sketches, and to work at the layout of the website.
We only wanted to have a lasting memory of this last year of high school, and we thought that working at something together and overcoming all the challenges will keep us united, give us an everlasting memory and sense of accomplishment, and help us in our future plans.
