Project Overview

1. Description of Our Community

Located in the south of Kaohsiung City, Taiwan, Fengshan District is a community with a long history and rich cultural assets. Furthermore, it popularity is the largest in Kaohsiung. It was a military base in Ming and Zheng Dynasties. There are many delicious food and night markets, and the community is very lively and busy. Moreover, there is a advanced performance hall, Weiwuying, and historic sites for studying history, such as Fengyi Academy. The water conservancy facilities are developed, and there is a most important water source in the Kaohsiung area, Cao Gongzhen. There are a lot of public facilities, and there are convenient transportation, for instance, MRT, trains, highways, etc. So, it is very convenient to come to Fengshan.

2. Summary of Our Project

Fengshan is a ancient town. It's an important military base from the Ming Zheng period to the Qing Dynasty. Fengshan Weiwu Ying was the reclaimed land of Zheng Chenggong's Army.Sometimes they grew the food,and sometimes they did the army training here.And it was a training center for recruits decades ago.Now it is a metropolitan park and Music Center since Decades ago. And it also provide the transportation info, let more people who want to Fengshan sightseeing can come here for sightseeing more easily. There are plenty of ancient temple in Fengshan, and it’s men’s faith center. We focus on the ancient architecture. We not only hope that everyone will visit Fengshan and taste the food but also recognize the history. We can tell from the results of the questionnaire that the current young men are not familiar with the history of Fengshan even if they have been to Fengshan before. Perhaps that they may not understand their hometown history. In the urban city, technology is changing with each passing day, so don’t forget to look back what happened on this land.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome

First, our teamates are from different classes, and in a very beginning we didn’t know each other. When we were discussing the topic and how to set the web, and that was the most difficult part. Second, the time wasn’t sufficient, because at the same time, we had to face the activities of school. It was often impossible to assemble everyone, and even spend extra time doing it. Our solution was using the convenience of the network, then talked and discussed in the group directly. Lastly, we didn’t do it before, so there is also the difficult part of learning the new skills. We paid lots of efforts for it.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

At the same time, we can also learn a lot of skills that we didn't normally learn, such as setting up websites and translation.But the most important thing is to learn how to work as a team.How to cooperate and discuss when everyone didn’t have time. Faced with such a large workload, there is also a great gain on how to use it and allocate time.

So the people who answered the questions would give us feedback, and also when they noticed the advantages or disadvantages of this place, they would pay more effort to improve it.Even we know it is our job to pass down the the tradition, so we ask the principal how to promote Fengshan as the character of school.
