Today, instead of having classes, their other teacher, Mr. Kariya, arranged a trip to an exhibition hall for an international technology fair. We all left for the event during lunchtime. There were Internet-connected computers there; about half of the students were interested in checking to see if any e-mail had accumulated for them over the weekend. Of those who wanted to check their mail, half could type in all the information without help, and half needed a little assistance from other students.

The students were free to roam about the fair on their own. A few checked out CUSeeMe and interactive drawing pads. All of them seemed to enjoy themselves.
