Kaohsiung is a beautiful city in Taiwan. The weather here is always good, and so is the air. Located on the south end of the Taiwan High Speed Rail Line. There are many famous temples at Zuoying, which have long histories, so we can know the life stories of ancestors and cultural heritage. In addition, the biggest Confucius Temple in Taiwan is right at Zuoying. And a wide variety of delicious food and snacks will satisfy your appetite. We would like to study more about the importance and history of Zuoying, and introduce the customs and culture to people. Also, we hope that we can understand the significance and value of our neighborhood.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome
For this contest, we met some difficulties. First, arrange the visit. How to complete the interview and collect all the necessary information for our study within a very limited period as well as to give a good impression to Zuoying Community. We not only divided into several small groups to prepare the appropriate questions for the interview, but also rehearsed the situation that would likely to happen during the interview. We also ask for help from teacher to make the photographs and videos, and record the complete process of this activity.Second difficult we met is we have a lot of information about Zuoying, but we felt that is not good enough to touch someone’s heart, so we set out to interview local people, let us had more story about Zuoying and it’s history.
5. Our Project Sound Bite

6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
The production of CyberFair can learn a lot of things that are not normally learned in class, such as the distribution of work, make use of time, etc., we also learned that the work is not an easy thing. Subject research is a different learning way from the regularization teaching of school. Because each person maybe gets the different harvest, it all depend on how you effort for. Through the research, we had more experienced than others. And about the production of web pages, data collection, data typesetting, team cooperation also has a practical application. These are all kinds of personal experience is necessary to pay effort, so get something is very valuable.
