Information technology is one of the fastest ways to receive the newest information and understand this world. As computer is usually be thought as a relaxing material but learning material by students, we try to make them collecting information and doing the research through the internet. Furthermore, letting students doing this project with their own such as thinking their own question during the meeting, recording the information they received, making a visitation to the monuments, etc. This project makes improvements on not only the self management skill to students, but also gives them a wider view on this world. We hope we can give our best report to everyone through the Cyber Fair this year.

5) Discoveries, Lessons and Surprises (Optional)
Citizens usually only understand parts of the local legend but miss out the main idea of it. However, if you try to understand more about the local legend, you will find out lots of ideas and literature background under it. Before we doing the research on the legend of Pingpu, we did not know the background of this legend. During the interview to the local profession, we understand the background and the reason of the revolution from Pingpu, and also understand the history of Pingpu. Furthermore, we find out the real story and the legend of Pingpu is only partly similar but not the same. From this research we have found out that there is lots of knowledge we can learn outside the school and we understand the possibility of human beings is unlimited.
