Reflection-Shlomit:


I enjoyed working on the project. The subject interested me.
I learned many things from the project. I learned work skills, how to write a project, how to work with a partner, and many other things.
From a different way I learned about Bell. I saw that all the technology that we have today started with a small thing that Bell invented. I learned that if you want to get something, it's a matter of will to get it. Another thing that I saw when I worked on the project is that even when people demanded Bell, he knew that he was the inventor and didn’t need the respect and the praise. I enjoyed learning on Alexander Bell.
