The school has two computer classrooms, each classroom has 30 computers, each computer can be connected through the optical fiber academic network, in addition to class, the computer classrooms are mostly idle, and we usually use early self-study or lunch time We discuss, time is always not enough. The teacher solicits the strong ability of the parents to teach and assist in the completion of the computer. With the help of parents and teachers, we learned the skills of photo compression, editing and editing of audio and video files, and how to make web pages, which virtually enhanced our 'skill'.

2) In what ways did you act as "ambassadors" and spokespersons for your CyberFair project both on-line and in person.

In order that the content of this project coincides with the courses taught in the school, we have designed a series of relevant activities, i.e. kiln of the outside campus teaching, sweet potato season in the campus, exhibition of teaching result during school's anniversary, etc. By way of different types of promotion, the school has strengthened its tie with the community and the interaction gets frequent and harmonious. We believe concern about hometown events and products is the foundation homeland education. Therefore, we use the campus as the base to cultivate our hearty concern over our homeland.

3) What has been the impact of your project on your community?

The establishment of the 'Community Development Association' to attract more young people into the ranks of volunteers, their intentions and momentum, and our theme is the spirit of coincidence, is worthy of our study. In the process of researching the topic, we found that community development associations, organizations are very complete, each group are doing their job, effort and selfless for the community to pay.As long as the chairman or CEO release work, each group will be mission-oriented, so we introduce the school to the Yangcuo community, I hope everyone's impression of the Yangcuo is no longer strange. The school is also like a small community, a strong centripetal force, regardless of you and me, to serve the public spirit, in order to unite for the school for more honor.

4) How did your project involve other members of your community as helpers and volunteers?

Thank you to our families who supported and guided us through this project. We appreciate your encouragement and love.

We will never forget how our teachers guided us through the process of project research. They gave us general direction as we started the project. They taught us how to collect data, edit and consolidate information, construct the multi-media Web page during the research process. When we encountered obstacles that we could not overcome by ourselves alone, they gave us just-in-time advices. When we turned in our homework, they always gave us optimistic big smiles.
