Dr. Y.C. Wu supervised a team of 10 students to install a high-speed data network in the multimedia computer laboratory in the Yuanjia Primary School in Deyang Sichuan. The system consists of modem, router, gigabit switches, file server and 30 sets of client terminals. The first Sichuan-Hong Kong Interactive Class had been successfully conducted through this system. Besides, the team also installed a ETV server which stored over hundred high quality ETV programs provided by the HKSAR Education Bureau. An on-line game sponsored by CLP for the promotion of environmental awareness had also been installed. Students can learn the concept of environment protection, global warming and energy saving through playing this educational game in the computer laboratory.
