4. Problems We Had To Overcome

First, the school affairs are too busy is our main problem. And we are practicing license at the same time. So, we only can use winter vacation to make a match. After school, our time becomes less and less. We only can use time to stay after school. Besides, each group member had their own business. To find the common time to discuss is difficult, so we find the way to record the time that each group member can stay in school. Find the most suitable time to make a match. In addition to the time issue, we have many web technology problems are insufficient.Therefore, we searched many solutions on the internet, and use a lot of time to seek help from teachers who are more professional in the technology.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

Our plan is mainly to introduce “The black gold in the sea of Taiwan- The mullet roe”. The content discusses the comparison of our Taiwan mullet roe with other countries due to climate? Season and region. Furthermore, we found a lot of well-known merchants of mullet roe on the internet, and we interview? DIY making mullet roe? Visit the mullet roe sightseeing factory. In this way, Taiwan mullet roe is the promotion of the world.

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

(1). The language of communication: The main language we use in school is Chinese. In the process of interviewing factories and local vendors, we communicated with the store in Chinese. After that, through interviews with the mullet roe factory and one-on-one explanations with the store, a lot of valuable information was obtained.

(2). Discuss mullet roe: We browsed books, searched on the Internet, interviewed professionals and teachers, and began to consider mullet roe related issues. We hope that this will enable everyone to understand the mullet roe better. We have done the medical effects of traditional Chinese and western medicine on mullet roe, the authenticity of mullet roe, and the special food of mullet roe. It will benefit us a lot and let everyone see the mullet roe. The light of the roe.

(3). Technical application: A lot of written data and pictures need to be collected in the project to make a website. To do so, we must use computer programs and the Internet on a regular basis. When organizing these texts and pictures, we also need to use various applications. We usually don't have the opportunity to build and edit websites, so this is our chance to learn and improve our skills!

(4). Integration area: For this project, we learned a lot about the interaction in interviews, mutual assistance in teamwork, and time allocation and management when collecting data.

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

We hope to carry forward the knowledge related to mullet roe, and let the world know our intention to make the web page. Through collecting information and interviews one after another, is it possible to be the ambassador of 'Taiwan mullet roe'. There are many unique ways to eat mullet roe in Taiwan. We also experienced it personally. We personally made a slice of mullet roe of our own. We also made grilled mullet roe, mullet roe for Chinese New Year... etc. We had personal experience of mullet roe. The characteristics are carried forward.

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

(1). Interview: We interviewed many locations and businesses, which allowed us to understand the culture and industrial pattern of the mullet roe, and more about the interviewee’s business policy and enthusiasm for the mullet roe industry.

(2.) Creativity: Even though the price of mullet roe is expensive, it is always loved by many people. Through this project, we have seen the diversified combination of mullet roe industry and modernity (such as: mullet roe ice cream, popsicle, tiny crispy mullet roe), Created not only the traditional way of eating mullet roe, but also new delicious specialties.

(3.) Sustainable development: Through participating in the data integration of mullet roe and the harvest of the interview itinerary, let us understand the hard work and preciousness of this industry. Fishermen must go early to catch mullet, and market businesses need to turn mullet into mullet roe. The process is also quite complicated and takes some time in the sun, and finally it becomes a delicacy. Originally, we only knew that mullet roe was an expensive food, but after experiencing the project, we got to know mullet roe thoroughly.

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

We did interviews in this project and received a lot of assistance. Special thanks to the following: (1). Zhenfang mullet roe factory (2). Mr. Xiaoliu (3). Caijia mullet roe (4). Haoweizhen (5). Lingya Night Market A lot of information in the project comes from the stores and markets we interviewed. Without their enthusiastic help, we would not be able to know the development of mullet roe and the characteristics of the industry. The photos of some products in the project are the store authorized to provide (Zhenfang Mullet Roe Factory, Caijia Mullet Roe, Haoweizhen). We sincerely thank them for the information provided during the interview and the pictures on the website design.

5) Discoveries, Lessons and Surprises (Optional)

This project allowed us to understand our own shortcomings. Whether it is collecting or organizing data, we still have room for further improvement. Through everyone's cooperation, we also know the meaning in areas that we do not understand. Although there is only a small part, it can make our knowledge more comprehensive, and become a so-called p-type person, instead of only focusing on one of the professional I-type people. With the cooperation of the team, everyone's knowledge and expertise are integrated, so that the finished product is not just boring alone, but colorful.

In the process of making the web page, we have a better understanding of the breadth and depth of mullet roe, which is not just a piece of fish roe, but a collection of people's sweat and efforts, which stand out from the long history. It is not the past, but the future.
