Hi team Helm!

Welcome to the forum. Maybe you need to be a bit more specific about exactly what you are looking?

I think you should check out 'The History of the Smokie', a fantastic film available now on DVD priced 10....but then I would say that wouldn't I? [winking]

Now, having read the Helm site, I agree with all you are trying to accomplish.
So here is my offer:
Do the research, which is fun and part of the learning experience.
Draft up your project in sections.
I will be delighted to review these sections and offer some tips as to content and presentaion.
First of all make an outline:
Section 1, Explain what you are researching and why.
Section 2, First major topic
Section 2, Second major topic
Section 3, Third major topic
Section 4, Overall what you learned and any broad conclusions.

You can divide topics to research between team members, then discuss the results prior to writing the drafts.
Edit, then present.
Fewer topics well researched are often more interesting than many topics skimmed.
ok?
