If we did not participate in the CyberFair project, many students will understand nothing about the Yuquan temple.

Our material is mainly gotten through the interview. Special thanks to our teachers, they give guidance from the method of thematic studies, support in computer technology, we can not finish the task without their enthusiastic help.
