The discovered results from the experimental teaching were, students could realize the thinking process of the whole question clearly, finished products of special topics could be modified and improved independently, adopt information software to assist teaching could promote students' absorb ability and increase study efficiency. The three set of finished products from teaching activities are "Intelligent household administration system", "Intelligent automobile instrument panel control system" and "Mini conveyer", in the name of the school, they participate in the scientific exhibition contest of high and elementary school in Taipei city, and they respectively won the Most Superior, Superior and Good awards in vocation high school of electron electronic and information division, and the one with Most Superior award got further award of champion in electron electronic and information division. The conclusion of the study is that if teachers could use this experimentation method more livelily, it could really promote talented students' ability in making of special topics and creativity.
