3) What has been the impact of your project on your community?

The web design competition is a lesson to improve our ability in comprehensive practice. It emphasizes the experiences such as those of setbacks. While the young people in modern society lack the relevant experiences. In concept, some leaders and teachers have not realized the importance of the experiences. This competition gives us an opportunity to realize nature, society and ourselves, as well as the ability to cooperate and communicate. It gives us an opportunity to learn how to settle the problems. The teachers and students have a different opinions towards us. They have realized the importance of practice from our change, especially the maths teacher of Wu Li who have also felt the change of Wu Li. The leaders of our school will hold more activities to train the students.
