4. Problems We Had To Overcome
For this contest, we met some difficulties. Firstly, we found that taking good pictures is not an easy thing. It’s common to take no sense or not clear photos. So we decide to refer other website’s photo and ask for photographers advice. After this useful help, we finally had useable pictures. Second difficult we met is we have a lot of information about Zuoying, but we felt that is not good enough to touch someone’s heart, so we set out to interview local people, let us had more story about Zuoying and it’s history.

6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
This competition fitted well with an elective course, computer programming. We learned how to cooperate and communicate with each other. Furthermore, we also learned how to use PhotoImpact, Adobe MUSE cc, FileZilla and other softwares. From this assignment, we felt that just listening to our teacher’s lecture in the classroom and submitting some easy homework was not enough. Our teacher not only passed knowledge to us but also instructed us how to put theories into practice. We learned something from our books and pushed ourselves to do many things on our own. It’s the most important experience for us.
