What Teachers and Students are Saying

From the students:

CAPE Charter School Students
Students from CAPE Charter School in
Camarillo, California
  • “That a long time from now, probably hundreds, maybe even thousands of years in the future may need to research about our generation which is something I have never really thought about before. There may be people looking back on what is now the future of our society, and without this project, there would be no record of us”
  • “The most important thing that I learned from this project was that people do actually care about what my generation thinks.”
  • “I didn’t know you could find so many primary resources online. I always thought you had to find books and other documents and it was surprising to find a lot of primary sources on the Internet.”
  • “Before this project, I was under the impression that whatever was posted on the Internet was permanent. But now, I realize that information posted on the Internet is always changing and evolving.”
  • “I realized just how interconnected the Internet is, when just 40-50 websites can link millions of pages.”
  • “I find it very interesting that you can look back on old websites and see how technology has progressed. I want to look back on the sites we posted in the future to see how things have changed.”
  • “I was surprised by the fact that people from next generation will also share the information that I have collected.”
  • “They’re really going to listen to us and let us choose sites to save? We’re eight!”
