The water of Hydraulic power utilization is mainly contained in the water potential power. It is composed of buildings to concentrate the natural flow of the gap, forming water head, and with the collection, to adjust the natural flow of reservoir; basic device is a hydraulic turbine generator unit. When the flow of water through the turbines, the turbine is driven by the current and rotation, the turbine drives a generator, and the mechanical energy turns into electrical energy, and then delivered the power to the user through the power transmission and distribution equipment. Hydropower is renewable energy in nature, it can be recycled with the hydrologic cycle, Hydro electric power does not consume fuel in the operation, operation and management cost and power cost is far lower than the coal-fired power plant. Hydroelectric power generation has chemical changes when the hydro energy is turned into electric energy, harmful substances are prevented to produce, there is a little influence on environment, so the energy is obtained from the hydraulic power is clean.

We understand the relevant content about hydropower from books, television, network and so on, combining comprehensive practice course in the school, walking out of the classroom into nature, came to the Yellow River shore, into the Laxiwa Hydropower Station, through interviews and personal experience, in the teacher and the relevant personnel introduction, we learned beneficial effect of hydroelectric, and we are proud that we have such power station at home, start from the protection of the environment around, do small guards to protect the environment. In the interview process, we also felt that it is impossible to finish all this without teamwork.

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

   The environment protection is a topic that the people often see on various media about about human health, people are also very concerned about the environment and economic development, when they were conflicted, businesses and individuals often take economic development in the first place, neglect or deliberate the environment, and hydropower is a clean energy. As a middle school student, we have the responsibility and obligation to protect the environment. The purpose to make the webpage is to let the people in our hometown and the people who travel here understand the exploitation of the Yellow River, so as to improve the understanding of the use of clean energy, and let the government and the enterprise put the environment on the first place in the development of the economy, keep economic development and environmental protection in harmony.

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

1, this project shocked the students in our school, at first, many students doubted if we can finish the work, they thought it was impossible to make a theme website. Then interview outside is fresh for them, a lot of people are interested in participating in this project.

2, under the guidance of the teacher, we went to the Laxiwa Hydropower Station, the staff felt very surprised that we can put forward such a big topic about cleaning energy as a student,they thought that only adults can participate in and discuss, we as students were not interested in this. But in the interview process, they were shocked when we discussed the topic about wetlands with the knowledge we had learned on the books and internet.

3, after we finished the website, we obtained the encouragement of school teachers and students, and they thought it was extraordinary because we had never known about this kind of activity. But we thought there were still a lot of shortcomings and regrets, and we hope that we can do better in the next Cyberfair
