Global Show-n-Tell

Some exhibits have themes such as “Take Your Daughter to Work Day.” Any child or student with multimedia pages residing in World Wide Web or FTP servers is welcome to add his or her work to the exhibition. The Global Show-n-Tell exhibition is sponsored by Telenaut Communications and ManyMedia.
