4. Problems We Had To Overcome

We were caught in troubles in collecting the information and desinging the webpage . It was hard to clllect the information of Huangshui which was our subject and our initial information were all from the internet . To be frank ,we even did not the name of this river in our homentown . To collect more information , we had to visit and take pictures personally . what was worse , as network in school disconnected often , we had to finish our fonts and words processing before we uploaded those information to our website . Meanwhile ,we could not ignore our school work while desinging our webpage as eighth grade was important and means heavier school burden . what was more , our guiding teachers were very laborious as they were busy with their teaching work for more than one class and guidance for us to design the webpage . We appreciated it .

5. Our Project Sound Bite

This activity was supported by our school leaders and teachers . We not only broadened our vision and improved our practice ability . Meanwhile ,the success of this project and the green initiation activity , we realized that there is a will , there is a way .

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

During this practice , we combined the school knowledge with practice to broaden our vision , know more about our hometown huang shui river and appealled more people to protect it .Compared to practice , we could only learn some fundamental knowledge in school classes . In this way ,we not only mastered some computer knowledge but exercised our social practice ability .This project benefited us a lot as we learnt many new knowledge and updated our sense of environment protection though we met many difficulties .

Project Elements

1) What information tools & technologies did you used to complete your CyberFair project?

Php WORD 2003 Flash 8.0 photshop 7.0 ? Internet Explorer FTP CISS OA Office

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

The goal of our project which focused on the environment protection was mainly to arouse people’s attention to environment protection from the hostory of Huang shui and its important status in people’s daily life ae well as the existing problems of it . Druing the visit , we realized the harm of environment pollution first and inspired our conscious to protect environment , gradually ,we came up with the idea to attract more people to engage in it . To fulfil this , we promoted in school by sending an environment protection initiation notice to all the teachers and students , and by showing the important influence of current contamination by means of comparison between the past and present through propagation boards and speeches , thus attracting more teachers and students to engage in the actions of environment protection . Besides , we also promoted the significance of environment protection to people around us , thus appealling more people in this process . We hoped that people could love and protect environment more and build a better natural environment inspired by our promotion .

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

It is mentioned in our senenth grade textbook that our earth is a water ball , if water was contaminated , how could people survive . Those people engaged into the interview , including us , realized that life was originated from water druing the interview process .We started the initiation to protect our surviving environment from everyone and trival chores . Meanwhile , we conducted relevant promotion work out of school to make more realize that water can be mpre pure , mountains can be more green only after people’s engagement to love and protect the environment .

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

We would like to offer our thanks to many people for the success of this project . Firstly , thanks to our two guiding teachers , Fu Mingxiang and Qi Haiyan , who had classes everyday ,had to teach us information technology , especially pictures processing , webpage design , and arranged field interview for us . We brought so much fatigue to them . In addition , thanks to the school leaders and teachers who supported this project a lot , coordinated headteacher , class teachers for us and left enough time for us to collect information , conduct field investigation and design webpage at noon and in our leisuring time . Without their help , we would proceed the project more difficultly .Thanks to those senior who received our interview , and their responsible attitude towards environment as witnesses of environment pollution . Meanwhile ,thanks to teachers , Li Zhihua and He Xiaosong from the Qian xiang wan cai Company who helped us to establish our website . With their help , our project can proceed smoothly . Last but not least ,thanks to our team members , we can fulfil our project with our common efforts and mutual assisstance . We appreciated it all !

5) Discoveries, Lessons and Surprises (Optional)

We not only learnt some information technology and realized the importance to protect the environment during the process . Our accidental behaviour may have caused harm to environment , which could be manifested by the global warmming , ozone depletion and frequent natural disasters resulted from the people’s negligence to protect environment . During the information searching process , we knew that developed countries transferred those enterprises featuring heavy pollution and high energy consumption to developpping countries . They did not realize that contamination to whatever countris means pollution to our planet as we lived on the same planet . The contamination of Huang shui which is a branch of Yellow river caused by the increase of companies featuring high energy consumption and heavy pollution meant pollution had happened in the middle and lower reaches of Yellow River . We should promote the importance of environment protection and tack action from trival things to protect our environment . Only in this way , mountains can be marvellous for hundreds of years and rivers can be green for thousands of years .
