2) In what ways did you act as "ambassadors" and spokespersons for your CyberFair project both on-line and in person.
In the beginning, knowing we were going to participate in a website competition (topic was local leader), our warmhearted Vice Principal Shu Shiao Bao introduced to us Principal David Chen. And through Mrs. Pi-Hua Lu and Mr. Shang-Chun Tsai's telephone connection with Principal David Chen, we found out about the principal's recent activities, thus arranged a interview right on the spot.
3) What has been the impact of your project on your community?
This competition has let us understand the importance of teamwork and work distribution. We assigned our jobs according to our interests and expertise. For example, team members who were good at animation, were arranged to the animation group.....,usw. When we encountered problems, we discussed and investigated them together, and we come up with solutions as a team. Seeing Calligraphist David Chen's passion for calligraphy made us deeply feel how enthusiastic David Chen is in promoting this variety of art. We have not only learned much, it also gave us a deep understanding of calligraphy culture.
4) How did your project involve other members of your community as helpers and volunteers?
When Principal David Chen was principal of Renwu Junior High School, he promoted a calligraphy movement, and requested students to participate in the school's calligraphy competition. And later on, he became the committee of the Chinese Culture Renaissance Movement, and promoted 'Standard Running Script' through out the community. The calligraphy movement he promoted not only let many people participate in the process of learning calligraphy, but also gave us an experience that would change our thoughts about calligraphy forever.
