1. Description of Our Community
Long chi are Mudstone Slope area, because Mudstone unfavorable crop growth, so the Long chi are most hillside planting bamboo tenacious of life. Long chi industry in previous years mainly bamboo, bamboo baskets, bamboo basket, bamboo shoots, bamboo shoots, bamboo-related products, With the times has been change, wages, industry migration coupled with the traditional bamboo product demand is diminishing, Traditional bamboo industry is gradually declining, Long chi Farmers Association in order to develop local industry, Under the guidance of the Council of Agriculture (COA) and Industrial Technology Research Institute of Taiwan, R.O.C combines of the Long chi features modern environmental, with health trends and processing bamboo charcoal, hope by charcoal bamboo industry to increase competitiveness and value-added.
2. Summary of Our Project
Charcoal, has been developed in Japan for many years, also known as the 'Black Diamond'. Released according to the study charcoal far infrared can accelerate blood circulation and the body temperature rises, but also has strong adsorption, breathability and insulation function, it can be said that the charcoal is the new black gold of the 21st century, and isn’t only provides a new way to utilize bamboo, but also benefits environmental protection by reducing pollutant residue. Bamboo charcoal is an environmentally functional material that has excellent absorption properties. Charcoal using bamboo as raw material, the first cut into 1-2 meter long bamboo into the smoke house smoked, than into the charcoal kiln after high temperature of 1,000 degrees, after ten days of the carbonization process can be refined to become charcoal. Because of the special structure of bamboo materials, surface area burned charcoal to six times that of the general charcoal grams of charcoal can be exposed to air surface area of 300 square meters. That’s why Bamboo charcoal is known to have high porosity. Various impurities or foreign matter will be absorbed over the wide surface area of the charcoal. When air passes over, if the humidity is high, the charcoal will absorb the moisture and the air will be converted to dry air. If the air is too dry, then the charcoal will discharge its own moisture, thus adjusting the humidity in the air. Bamboo vinegar or pyroligneous acid is extracted when making charcoal and is used for hundreds of treatments in almost all fields. This liquid contains 400 different chemical compounds and can be applied for many purposes including cosmetics, insecticides, deodorants, food processing and agriculture.

Because of the geographical position, the school's network speed can only reach 2M, but each classroom can use the Internet with a computer classroom, and each class of wireless networks, symposia and research.
4. Problems We Had To Overcome
Time: The event, from the beginning to sign up to proceed with the very urgent, plus the School Curriculum multiple classes difficult tie.
Communication and interview skills: the skills of rural children is relatively insufficient, in addition to slightly timid and introverted, in arranging the interview subject, and less able to understand exactly what live points visits asking.
Data aggregation and writing ability: weak national languages??, data compiled with a clear description of the need to be more careful.
Community Resources: because to visit some of the local charcoal of industry who, although they very enthusiastic to help, but because of our expression ability to compare inadequate, as well as charcoal kilns of into the kiln and the kiln time and can not be with the interview and change, but fortunately they take the initiative to provide a lot of information, thank you for their help.
5. Our Project Sound Bite
Act now and your dreams come true?
6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
Related fields Combination of activities and courses language fields Thematic research process, we want to discuss the results and make impressions, share and discuss the essay can be trained in every interview and data compilation. Because we was nervous and a little incoherent, unable to timely access richer spot to play, but after a time of experience, we have skilled many. Social fields Us to explore a charcoal firing process, and the reason behind the development of, and contact among people, things, objects, visit the related figures. In this series of interviews, we also learned the background of people's attitude of local specialties. Nature and Life Technology Charcoal applications of Internet search, digital SLR camera, to record the course of our study, Facebook as a platform to send data and to share our experiences, using a variety of web production technology and image processing software to all research results made ??into a website, make good use of a variety of information tools, the ability to enhance the use of information technology. Arts and humanities Learning photography, the teacher taught us how to compose, and viewfinder, and appreciate of various hidden in the life of small things with different eyes and our sense of beauty, culture in this process. health and physical education Thematic research process, we also try to go Handling the charcoal well as bamboo, but also the way to exercise the physique, and can understand different industries toil. Integrated activities We work together with each other to discuss, and learn how to become an reporters, unity and cooperation, and to work together.
