2) In what ways did you act as "ambassadors" and spokespersons for your CyberFair project both on-line and in person.
When it comes to floral experts, Floriculture Research Center crosses our minds. It’s not open to the public, so we have to make an appointment. Mr. Hsieh, the director, who has been very helpful. He answered lots of our questions on the phone and in mails. Unfortunately, he was too busy for an interview in person. But he had Mr. Ding, a senior researcher show us around and do the interview. He is very knowledgeable, particularly in floriculture and breeding science. We’ve learned a lot from him.
3) What has been the impact of your project on your community?
We learned many kinds of flowers. We found more than one hundred kinds on campus. We drew a flower map with photos we took to promote the beauty of flowers and make people pay more attention to the surroundings. After all visitations and interviews, we organized the information and promote these floral art events. Also, we organized some flower tours for tourists. Hope we can introduce the world how beautiful our floral art is.
4) How did your project involve other members of your community as helpers and volunteers?
We’d like to thank Mr. Hsieh Tingfang, the director and Mr. Ding I, a researcher of Guken Floriculture Research Center. Mr. Hsieh learned that we were doing a project, so he tried his best to help us and had Mr. Ding show us around and do an interview. Moreover, the tour guide from the floral park association in Changhua who took us to circle half of the park by bike. We’ve learned a lot from them.
5) Discoveries, Lessons and Surprises (Optional)
Every team member grew a lot by doing this project. The fusion of flowers and art is kind of special that it shows the beauty of flowers and gives them lives. Since we’ve been studying about this, our thoughts on flowers are not merely “beautiful”, but more feelings. We learned a lot of knowledge not in the textbooks. Communication with classmates inspired us much. We also discussed about the meaning of floral art. Now whenever we see flowers, we would stop and spend time observing them.
