    This project has been designed to encourage creativity and exploration of expressing information and ideas using classical and modern research and presentation methods.

    General Goals
    (Why are we doing this?)

    To encourage the use of various skills that one can use in the graphic arts environment.

    To learn some background information about the Eiffel Tower itself by reading and answering questions about the tower.

    To develop hand drawing skills as well as drawing skills that incorporate a computer graphics drawing program.

    To learn the skills and importance of time management and meeting deadlines.
