4. Problems We Had To Overcome

Because the environment we are located in is the country far from the city and drops behind the modern city, we have little resource to use, and we must do all by ourselves. Being lack of money, we should barrow the equipment, like digital camera, digital record, etc from others and we should overcome finding the vehicle since observing outdoors.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

No pains,no gains.

6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?

By this research, our team learn a lot. Because the revolution of education in Taiwan is beginning, we just correspond with spirit of aims. The students learn by doing and they learn how to take care of their community. We use the digital tech by recording the process and presenting the result.

Project Elements

1) What information tools & technologies did you used to complete your CyberFair project?

By doing the research, we use the equipments and skill as lists: Computers, telephones, digital camera, scanners, libraries, books, newspapers, and oral interviews.

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

The students in the country are very shy and they have less chance to communicate with the adults. By the way of oral interviews, they have the justifying reason to interview with the people. It is the role of an ambassador they play.

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

The issue of the environment protection in the country attracts less attention. By our research, we let many people in our community recognize the beauty of our environment and our community, and they will pay more attention to protect our environment.

4) How did your project involve other members of your community as helpers and volunteers?

We should thank for many people for helping us and that we can finish our research. There are many people in our community to help us enthusiastically and the information and data we collect are given from many professors.

5) Discoveries, Lessons and Surprises (Optional)

The beauty of the natural attracts the people who know to treasure. Sometimes we slow down our pitch and we will find the whole new world.
