Third, they are not familiar with webpage making, so they have to learn from scratch, learning by doing.

At the beginning, we did not quite understood on this project, in the teacher's introduction, we understood that since the school participated in the project, we had already won the gold medal in the two consecutive Webpage contest. In the Webpage production process, in the unified arrangement of the teacher, we carried out the division of labor. 3 students were responsible for text data collection, 3 students collected image data, and 4 students visited the relevant units and personnel. Finally, we and teacher Ma completed Webpage production. Although this process had encountered many disappointments, each of us was very excited, because this was the first time to take part in webfair, from which we can grow a lot of knowledge. I hope we can win the first battle!
