Project Overview

1. Description of Our Community

It is located in Eight Treasures Plain which is the hinder land of Lanzhou metallurgy valley. There are three towns of Liancheng, Heqiao Town in Yongdeng County and Yaojie Town in Honggu District. Datong River flows across these three towns. It is a treasured place with beautiful mountains, fertile soil and rich mineral resources. Due to its special geographic location, Yaojie Town has a favorable natural environment. It is political under the authority of Yuegu District. With humid climate and four distinctive seasons, it is a golden natural scenic spot. It is also an important intersection of many nationalities such as Han, Hui and Dongxiang.

2. Summary of Our Project

The coal resources have been over mined by local and foreign merchants in the recent ten years. Finally, the resources have nearly dried up here. The surrounding environment of Yaojie is getting worse. The water has been polluted. The plant cover has been seriously damaged. The atmospheric pollution has gotten more serious. Because of environmental deterioration, Yaojie Town becomes a city of resource exhaustion from Eight Treasures Plain which has long been known with its beautiful scenery and rich resources. How to face the current situation of our hometown? How to deal with these problems? What are the advantages and differences between previous and current Yaojie? How to construct Yaojie in the future? With these questions in mind, walk in our hometown, seek its development and think about its future development.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome

At the beginning, we are unfamiliar with the interfaces of webpage making. But with the efforts of engineers, our teachers and our efforts, we get familiar with them day after day. Along with the process of research and making, we have gotten more and more picture information. In order to realize the final effects, we have to choose some from these.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

During the process of webpage making, every member of our team has teamwork spirit. Everyone takes part in the jobs actively and earnestly with clear division of jobs. Under the efforts of the members and Zhangwen adviser, we complete all desired objects satisfactorily. It gives us great help to understand our hometown about Yaojie’s history and development with the webpage making. We only know current Yaojie and do not know its past and development process. I believe in that we are successful one day, we will get back to construct our hometown and be a qualified generation of Yaojie. We get more knowledge of our hometown and strengthen our heart to it from the webpage making. At the same time, it enhances our ability to finish a practical activity.

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

It introduces information processing and expression in our textbook of Information Technology Infrastructure. Our study is a good practical lesson of textbook knowledge. Under new curriculum reformation, call for good investigative studies and social practices. It is a good opportunity for us to practice and use of our knowledge in DigiChina study activities. We think that we can take exercise of our social skills and improve our qualities through this activity.
