In 2013, Sichuan Province carried out 'beautiful Sichuan -- to find the most beautiful artificial lake' large-scale public welfare activities, Sima region won the province's 10 best 'the most beautiful artificial lake'.

Today's Sima is preparing to receive her friends and guests from all over the world with a brand-new look. I am pound of my hometown.

2. Summary of Our Project

Through visiting Sima water town, we know the importance of knowledge, and we feel the importance of high-tech knowledge for agriculture, to change the current situation in rural areas with knowledge is a good way to rural development and prosperity. Let us work together, let technology offer services to rural areas, so that more people benefit!

3. Our Computer and Internet Access

A. Percentage of students using the Internet at home:less than 20

B. Number of workstations with Internet access in the classroom:1

C. Connection speed used in the classroom:dedicated connection

D. Number of years our classroom has been connected to the Internet:more than 6

E. Additional comments concerning your computer and/or Internet access (Optional):

School network conditions are not good, there is a room, but there is only a local area network, but it can not connect the Internet access, and the computer room can not go in and out easily. Therefore, we have to borrow the teacher's computer to collect information on the Internet and make sites. We type words, edit and process pictures when we have a class in the computer room, and then copy them on the teacher's computer with U disk to make and upload the website.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome

Time is limited-it is approaching mid-term exam while web production activities are being held, all the students are reviewing, the three of us need to draw a lot of time doing theme research, although the review time is less, and our exam may be affected, through making web pages, we learned new knowledge, it is also a harvest. In the past, our agricultural knowledge is in the original farming stage, after visiting the agricultural park and searching some relevant knowledge online, we sorted out the more complete information. Lack of transportation---- because the agricultural park is far away from the school, so we have to drive instead of walking, with coordination of the teacher, we got a car. We visit the agricultural park in the afternoon on weekend, and our time is also the break time of a staff member in the agricultural park, only a small number of workers were on duty, therefore they can not introduce the park completely.Poor IT skill----after collecting the pictures and words, we need to make them into a web page, it is a huge problem for us who have never been in contact with the production of web pages. Thank teacher sun, he taught us to make web pages and processing pictures. Thank teacher Chen, he gave us ideas and suggestions. Thanks for the students, and they made recommendations for us, so that we have the confidence to make. In the latter part of the creative process, the teachers had been doing our strong technical support, so that we can finally complete the task.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

After visiting the agricultural park, we completely changed the concept of traditional agriculture. The agriculture is also very interesting, and it is also can be a clean and tidy planting. Many children in the city look down on the rural children, they think the environment is very bad in rural areas, we will introduce agricultural garden of water town to the children in the city, we also hope someday in the future, agriculture garden mode can spread to ordinary people, so that rural status can be changed, let the countryside becomes like a garden!

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