1) What information tools & technologies did you used to complete your CyberFair project?
a、Computers：We use 3 computers in the Dean's Office.Computers are our main tools to do our work.
b、Telephone：We used the telephone in school to arrange the interview and contact those Sifus.
c、Television and VCD player：We use them to watch the films in school about the lion dance.
d、Digital camera：We use digital camera to take the beautiful pictures about our research process. The digital camera can connect to the computer and transfer our pictures to the computer.
e、Digital recorder：We used digital recorder to record the interview and avoid forgetting important things. The digital recorder can record the voice and connect to the computer.
f、Scanner：Sometimes we use the normal camera to take the photos, so we need to use the scanner to scan those pictures into the computer. And we draw some paintings, so we need to scan them, too.
g、Digital web camera-CCD：We use CCD to hold a web meeting with some friends in other places. We connect to the internet and ask some questions with Teacher Wei's friend in United States.

2) In what ways did you act as "ambassadors" and spokespersons for your CyberFair project both on-line and in person.
a、searching from libraries： When we went to libraries, the management is curious about our topic—the lion dance. Children of this age would not look for any books about this topic often. So we told them about our plan and project. They always encourage us and wish us to do well.
b、interviewing from the management in the temples in Da-Tsuen： When we went to the Tzu Yun temple in Da-Tsuen the first time, Mr. Lai Chung Lun showed his enthusiasm and generosity to us.Surprised for he would like to tell us so many things about the lion dance in Tzu Yun temple.The second time, we separated 3 teams to interview the other 8 temples in Da-Tsuen.
c、interviewing from Sifu A-lu and Sifu Shih： When we interviewed Sifu A-lu, he seemed very nervous and uncomfortable. Also, he used our mother language—Taiwanese to speak to us, we can not understand very clearly. We felt a little frustrated. We also interviewed a very nice person—Sifu Shih Shun Jung. He was the expert on the lion head. So we asked him to teach us how to make a lion head. He promised to teach us in our winter vacation.
d、making lion head with Sifu Shih： We gathered our equipment for making the lion head which included soil and sand with our parents. After those 6 hard days, we had a friend and teacher—Sifu Shih. He taught us not only the way how to make a lion head, but also taught us his method and view of life.
e、questionnaire from our schools’ students： We drew up a questionnaire to ask our schools’ students about the lion dance. Most of them don’t know very much about it, but all of them had seen the lion dance. We told our students all information about the lion dance from our interviews and from the internet search.
f、other teachers in our school： Because we want to do the questionnaire with our classmates and students, we explain it to the other teachers in our school what we needed them to help us.
3) What has been the impact of your project on your community?
a、Students： During this project research, we found out many interesting things. We went away from the classroom to learn first time, research something with other people for the first time, use many technological equipments for the first time, make lion head first time, interview someone else first time, be a reporter first time. We overcame so many “first times”. And we also needed to gather information from those “first times”！ It’s a very exciting and strange experience for us that we will not easily forget.
b、School and our local community： Because we went out to interview in our local community, many elders knew our project. Their encouragements gave us more confidence to continue our research. We were also able to publicize our school. We also helped teachers in our school, which can depend on our research to teach students about the lion dance.
4) How did your project involve other members of your community as helpers and volunteers?
First of all, we must thank Sifu A-lu—Mr. Lee Lun Yao and Sifu Shih Shun Jung. They allowed us to interview them. Especially Sifu Shih, he cancelled all of his arrangements to teach us. We felt so surprised by his kindness, so we made our lion head very hard.
When we needed to go out to interview, we met a big problem—the transportation. Fortunately, Szu Ching’s mother-- Lai Ai Chu, and Yen Chieh’s mother-- Huang Chao Ying, Ya ling’s mother-- Shu Hua, and Teacher Huang Chieh Peng would like to be our driver to pick up us. Their help supplied us a very big favor. We must also thank an important person—Mr. Tsai Tsai Chin. He taught us how to create a beautiful web page, and he also helped us to perfect our final draft. He also programmed a new function to search our information in our own web page. He did us a big favor for our web page！
Finally, we must thank the donation from Parent-Teacher Association, and the support from our principal--Mr. Lee Tsu An and dean of study—Mr. Huang Hsin Chun, the principal of Jih-Hsin elementary school--Mrs. Chiu Chin Chih. They provided us with many local news and information to make our interviewing a success.
5) Discoveries, Lessons and Surprises (Optional)
After our project research, we found out many things about the lion dance we did not know before. As the result of the questionnaire, we found out many children were like us before, and did not know these rules and origins about the lion dance. Most people had a lot of confusion about the lion dance. So we made this web page to introduce the lion dance to everyone. On the other hand, we also learned many skills about computers and technological equipment that have changed and improved us forever. And, we also felt proud of our lion head which we made by ourselves. If we did not do it by ourselves, we would not realize how hard it is！Never engage a challenge, never develop the wisdom can describe our position！
