4. Problems We Had To Overcome

This is our second time to take part in web page making competition. There are many specialties in our hometown. It made us all surprised when teacher told us school won a prize by posting on a Web site under the subject of “Douhua with pickled sour juice”. Douhua can be made into Tofu, and it is an indispensable dish. So we mainly devote ourselves to studying the Tofu. We started to find information, to visit school canteen, in which canteen staffs supported us, unfortunately, we did not try to cook by ourselves. But we shall have many opportunities of try cooking during the school holidays.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

We got know about “Douhua with pickled sour juice” last year, since the theme of 'Tofu pudding” can make webpage for competition , tofu can also produce more delicious foods, it makes us feel very excited. Only if you are an observer in life, there is knowledge here and there.

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

There are many local flavors in Caotian district, but students know little about local foods’ cooking. The new teaching reform asks for a school-based textbook development. So, we thought about studying local foods around us, and took it as our local courses, so that we undertake the work of publicity in our district tourism business.
