2. Summary of Our Project
We establish the webpage on The first sculptor- Pu Tian-Sheng in Taiwan which is presented by the way junior high school students can understand. The works wich finished by The Pu’s and Dr. Huang hsiu-yin in 3D digital scan archive-Using have been exited before the project is proposed. The 61pieces of works on human body were made to be digital interaction mode. For the international resource, we dare not to set a goal in the archive resources.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome
1.Inconvenient transportation Ruifang is located in a remote area with rugged terrain in the mountains. For example, the old houses of the Yen family is located at the mountain entrance of Sijiaoting Dapu Road and it is filled with mud and unsteady road and requires sturdy means of transportation to get to. 2. Lack of interview experience This interview account for an important part of our research. During our interview process, we met many important figures and local elders, but we found we were not able to bring up the most important issues at the time. We were anxious, mind tangled and stuttering, we were not able to be as fluent as the teachers. 3. Terrible weather One of Ruifang’s characteristic, of course, is its humidity and rain. Especially during recent winter, cold systems collide head on to Taiwan, and the worst hit area is always Ruifang in the Northeast. It is always inconvenient in the case of transportation.
5. Our Project Sound Bite

6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
Participating in this year’s competition is closely related to the Grade 1-9 curriculum. The essence of the Grade 1-9 education is centered on “life” and respecting the individual development of each student and nurturing students’ ability to adapt to modern life. Through research of the topic of “The first sculptor- Pu Tian-Sheng in Taiwan” we have researched deeply into local characteristics and cultural history of “Taiwan’s art history,” and carried out students’ care for the people, things and articles of their home.
