4. Problems We Had To Overcome
The subject we use in the web page design in competition is “Special Local products”. We have many special local products here, so when the teacher said that we would do the subject of “Jiangjin Pepper”, we were all surprised. What’s the unique of the pepper? But the teacher told us, “No investigation, and no words”. So we participated in this activity with doubt attitude. It’s very easy to observe pepper trees on the spot and we found nothing special. Then we began to search information online, but we didn’t find enough information. When we were disappointed, we decided to go to the forestry bureau of Jiangjin to interview them. The uncles and aunts were very friendly, they explained to us and provided many important materials which broadened our views and gave us confidence. Although we had some difficulties in the following interviews, we managed to overcome at last. When we saw the web page designed by us, we were so excited, because they were the results by our efforts.

6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
Students not only need to study, but also need to care for life, learn to observe and to find. Meanwhile, we should watch news in the spare time, not only just learn from books. We need know more about the history and economy of our hometown to broaden our views. In this way, we design web page and learn knowledge. We benefit a lot by participating in the competition of designing web page.
