Project Overview

1. Description of Our Community

Although Lukang has caused the water transport function to disappear due to siltation of the port, and the shift of political and economic focus, it has been silent for more than a hundred years, but the rich cultural assets left by the ancestors have not disappeared, with the rise of the local culture trend, plus The government's emphasis on cultural assets, whether it is sightseeing, collecting customs, searching for sacred pilgrimages, pilgrimages or tasting food snacks.

2. Summary of Our Project

We are a group of sixth-grade students from Ludongguo. We are interested in using web design to explore the cultural industry in which Taiwan Cypress has gradually disappeared. We are aware of the coexistence of environmentally friendly people in the early days of the ancestors, and today the plastic toys are full of The problem is to let more people pay attention to the spiritual and cultural value of second-hand recycling and recycling by promoting the promotion of Taiwanese cypress toys.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome

I think the biggest problem in the group is lack of time. In the school can only use a short lunch break time, and some of the number is often unable to come because many people in this group have other positions are also lunch time meeting. So we use winter vacation more leisure time, and went to the school together to do the site, will be additional at home production. Members of this group are business management department. In the computer program is not often contact, so do not familiar with using it. Thanks teachers carefully taught almost zero from the beginning. If there are small places unknown we will support each other, or Find answers from the web yourself.

Every week we will have a meeting for making and discussing website, and draw up a goal, everyone assign different jobs, some teammate may not hand out on time because of the personal reasons, caused our inconvenience, Otherwise we will review our job assign, readjust, and let the finished teammates help those who were unfinished, helping each other, and play our team force.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

We through lots of interviews and practice s to finish our Topic, and by the process we promoted a lot of concept of seed paper. Even grant questionnaires (over 150 papers), also let more people to understanding seed paper. Many people do not know this, even surprise their exist. Also think about the significances of them---How to regeneration environmental resources ! Blessing may become environmental protection. Make the seed of gratitude germinate again. After watching out Topic, we believe that more and more people willing to think more. We also make an effort for environmental protection of the world.

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

We discussed during our lunch break, using websites making skill in computer class, analysis skill in business class, and language logic in English class. In addition to teachers help, we also visited businessmen, made some investigations ,found some books and looked for studios to learn how to make paper ,and we gained a lot.

Project Elements

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

We use 25 computers,telephones,TV and radio stations,video and digital still cameras, digitizers and scanners to record our works. We go to libraries and read many books, to find the news of seed paper.At last, we made an oral interviews to meet the founder in Taiwan.

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

Through the study of Toys made by Taiwan cypress, we can't help but think of the toys that the children used to play, the toys that our children play now, and the toys that the future children play. Is there a natural adhesive made of natural bark? Whether Taiwan will cause pollution problems due to plastics or because of air pollution will no longer be fragrant.

We also found that the land in the hometown of the land is like a mother, silently guarding every generation, regardless of the age of poverty or the age of prosperity, everyone should cherish all kinds of home environment, and the land can coexist forever.

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

From the course of this special study, we have learned about the fading cultural industry of 'Taiwan-made cypress toys' and see the persistence and enthusiasm of the older generation of masters, although they all know that the plastics industry has replaced this natural Material products, but along the way still adhere to the spirit of hometown, traditional methods and the spirit of persistence. We want to share this spirit of 'responsibility to the environment and tribute to tradition' to more people.

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

In this Taiwanese cypress toy research process, we have set up local communities many times. In addition to visiting the masters, we also conducted street questionnaires. The local elders are very enthusiastic about us. Besides, when we set up booths in the new ancestral palace, At the time of DIY's propaganda, the temple also provided our venues and tables. For the gradual disappearance of the cultural industry that explored Taiwan's cypress toys, we realized that local people agree with the coexistence of the early ancestors and the environment, and we also reduced our plasticity. With the support of sports and the promotion of toys made by Taiwan's Cypress, we also hope that the spirit and cultural value of second-hand recycling and recycling will be recreated by the people of Taiwan.
