Project Overview

1. Description of Our Community

The east of Lu-Kang is Shiou-Shuei town: the west is Taiwan Strait: the south is Fu-Shing town and the north is Ho-Mei town and Shian-Shi town. It’s two kilometers away from the coast and the measure of it is about 40square kilometers. It’s a long narrow district.

Lu-Kang is a famous cultural old town in Taiwan. It used to be the gateway of mid-Taiwan and the second old town only second to Tainan. We can see the prosperous Lu-Kang from the old saying;” The first one is Fu; the second one is Lu and the third is Meng-Jia”. But now, without the illustrious position, it still possesses plenty of historical estate and it’s also a town worth going on a deep trip.

2. Summary of Our Project

In the past, Lu-Kang is prosperous in economy, so people’s life was very stable. Therefore, Lu-Kang had folk custom skills, south and north band music, literature, penmanship, painting, and tea snacks, etc. Moreover, religious belief brought so many graceful building of temples that Lu-Kang had become a town, which had the most and oldest temples in Taiwan. The most valuable of all is that Lu-Kang Long-Shan Temple, which is judged by the Domestic Department, the National First Grade historical structure. Lu-Kang Long-Shan Temple has serious style, splendid scale, beautiful carvings and colorful paintings. It’s called “The Forbidden City in Taiwan” and “The Art Palace of Taiwan.

To enter the internet is ok, but to design a web is still a tough job.

(4) Disasters of the research:

Long-Shan temple suffered 921 earthquake on 1999/09/21, and was seriously damaged. It resulted in obstacles of the research.

(5) Lacking of time:

We take good use of our holidays to finish the research.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

By way of the topic research, we love Lu-Kang more and we even make up our mind doing relative studies in the nearly future constantly. Let more people come to visit this fair, cultural, and old town.

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

The present textbooks are more conforming to the modern needs than in the past except in the teaching materials about hometown. By way of such topic research, we can collect the ideas about our hometown and combine the information technology to take advantage of communicative convenience of the internet to rebuild the sense of humanness. Therefore, the research is not only important , but also helpful to teaching. It is a good beginning.

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

Some people think if only we visit the temple several times that we can finish the task. In fact, every time we went there, we got something new. Visiting it again and again makes us feel ”afford food for thought”. Maybe in the nearly future, you will be able to see our web via typing “Lu-Kang Long-Shan temple” on the famous explore engines
