Project Overview

1. Description of Our Community

Our school is located at the eastern Sichuan province revolutionary area, daxian county stone bridge town, located at qiuling Xiaoping ba. It belongs to ba country in spring and autumn times, yizhou in Qin Dynasty, jianchang in han dynasty, taiping county in sui and tang dynasty, and then liuyang county(which is at the gaosizhai, 2 miles away from the current site, so it is named as stone bridge as yangliu town.) It got its peak in Song Dynasty, while ruined in Ming Dynasty until it was rebuilt in Early Qing dynasty. The stone bridge got its name from the ten bridge on the river from north to south.(shortly named as stone bridge). In 1985, the town was built in the name of stone bridge.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome

We are suffering from misunderstanding, with the patient understanding, we find our way to find the camera, taking time to edit, sometimes work overnight sometimes. If working downstairs in the studio to 12, we cannot go into the dormitory, just on the Mr. wu’s sofa, we feel the hardness of starting the career.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

The ancient town is our proud, we just didn’t realize its beauty. Till it seems for us that we feel our pleasure in the childhood was nearly replaced. Without our sense, we hurt each other, we want to take this activity as a chance to keep the simplicity to the ancient town and street.

6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?

As the course of high school art enjoyment city building development and ancient building protection, as the topic is wide and knowledge is widely involved , which is also hard for the student from the city. For the farm students, this topic is also very hard. the modern building, especially the village citizen is very hard, the lack of building art and lack recognizing in mind, which leads to village ancient town. Lenin street is doing the second stage developing, taking the local life example into the book knowledge-oriented, which looks persuaded. From one street to one town, and to a city, and to culture sense mansion. It needs words a picture to illustrate, maybe we are lonely, but we are working on it.
