Project Overview

1. Description of Our Community

We define our local products as Quan-Miou Noodles and we did the research in all aspects. Quan-Miou is well-known as the noodles. Many famous media and popular delicacy TV programs have hotly reported about it. Even the neighboring county, Guei-Ren, has been set up in Quan-Miou noodles factories. Inside Quan-Miou county, there are almost 25 noodle factories. This monographic study is aimed at researching the characteristic and historical factories for gluttons. Based on these useful information, they can pick up their best choices.

2. Summary of Our Project

Due to the National Highway No.3 and the Expressway No.86 are opened to vehicular traffic, more and more people visit to Quan-Miou. And Quan-Miou Noodles have already become the necessary souvenirs for the visitors. Many people like to eat Quan-Miou Noodles, but rare of them know the producing process. All our research team want to introduce the specialty and developing history of Quan-Miou Noodles via this website. Sincerely invite everyone to visit our website and take an Internet Quan-Miou trip.

A. Percentage of students using the Internet at home:less than 20

B. Number of workstations with Internet access in the classroom:2-3

C. Connection speed used in the classroom:dedicated connection

D. Number of years our classroom has been connected to the Internet:1

4. Problems We Had To Overcome

It was really difficult for all the team members to gather together on weekends. Many students have to go to cram schools. So it’s quite commendable for the team to accomplish the monographic study. Besides, almost every student never had the experience to make a website. All of them tried their best to accomplish it.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

It was the first time for the students to make a website and interview with managers. All of the team members did their job cautiously. When interviewing the managers of those factories, the students were really impressed by their conscientious attitude. These precious experiences will be very useful for the students.

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

During the researching process, the students learned how to collect useful information and deeply understood the native culture which was easily ignored in the school curriculum. And the students also shared all these valuable information with people around the world via the Internet

Project Elements

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

We used digital video and recorder to film and record all the interviewing process and introduction. And digital camera were used to shoot all the related information of accomplishing the website. We also applied Freamweaver, Frontpage, Flash, Photoimpact and GMAIL to accomplish our website.

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

We used MSN to chat with those people who also took join in the cyberfair. And we often checked our message board to answer all the message from other teams

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

With the convenience traffic, Quan-Miou Noodles are gradually spread out from our native country. Those tasty noodles are not only hotly sold in Taiwan, but exported to Europe, USA, Austria and New Zealand. We hope those people who visited our website can experience the historical inheritance and cultivation of Quan-Miou Noodles.

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

We sincerely thanked Shang-Jhih, De-Sing, Sie-Jin Noodles Factories and other managers to help us. With the connection of our Parents Association, Teachers Wu Jheng-Sin and Ye Rong-Tian, we could successfully proceeded the process of the monographic study. And we really appreciated that all the managers enthusiastically accepted our interview and answered all the questions.

5) Discoveries, Lessons and Surprises (Optional)

The discoveries of the monographic study were all the characteristics of those noodels factories and noodles producing process. We were all amazed by our native culture, historical background and the innovative spirit. All the noodles factories own their unique characteristics and background history. We tried our best to describe all the specialities of them. But it was still very difficult to narrate all the researching process exhaustively in the limited pages.
