Project Overview

In order to popularize YouBike, the length of the board of directors has passed many tests and successfully made YouBike famous in the world. This presentation also incorporates the efforts and hard work of the Kang Chiao team to write YouBike's establishment background/operation method/car body structure and environmental protection concept in detail.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome

During the research, the pandemic occurred, and it made our work much harder. We can't register for the CyberFair in Taiwan, and the pandemic disorganised our plan. The pandemic made us very frustrated, and we had no progress for about a month. When we were about to give up, the news of YouBike 2.0 reinvigorated us, and we started to research again. However, the ninth grade students have to prepare for senior high school, and they've got no spare time to work on the project. Even though we met so many circumstances and challenges, we still didn't give up, and we finished the project together.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

This topic allows people to understand how the bike-sharing model is implemented and operated in Taiwan. It can also let people understand YouBike's efforts to drive bicycle culture and atmosphere. Students can learn more about the stories behind the things in life through this topic.

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

In this project we gained researching skills, realized the importance of passion, and how to interact with people, the essential elements for learning.

Project Elements

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

We complete our CyberFair project through using online resources, oral interviews and the spirit of teamwork.

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

We contacted people working in YouBike and students in the community through interviews and email surveys and received feedback from both.

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

YouBike can make it more convenient for people in Taipei to have cheap and environmentally friendly transportation to work. In addition, YouBike also affects the convenience of Taiwanese people's travel, allowing people to have convenient means of transportation when traveling.

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

We invited people in the community, merchant, students and teachers in the school to complete the research with us. Their involvement was exclusive; no surveys could be done without their help.
