1. Description of Our Community
Kaohsiung, original a seaside city, is transformating to an industry- and service-prosperous city. During the transformation, many have been lost. While striving hard to create new things and preserve old traditions at the same time, Kaohsiung City is becoming finely energetic.
2. Summary of Our Project
Headwear industry is never a mainstream business in Kaohsiung. Kingstree Headwear Shop is one of the best in the trade. In order not to be ousted from the market, it is trying its best to design fashionable merchandize to cater to the new generation. The prupose of this project is to let people in Taiwan know that there is a local headwear shop that can make quality and inexpensive hats.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome
Before doing the project, students nearly knew nothing about the topic. However, through meetings and instructions, they gradually knew how do move along. And though computer facilities are more than enough in our school, they had to do their web pages on their own, of course after the teachers' instructions.
5. Our Project Sound Bite
It really improved the organizing skills on the part of teachers, and communication skills and logical thinking on the part of students.
6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
This project is really the extension of courses of introduction to business and business management. In doing this project, students learned to communicate with one another. They also learned how to communicate with strangers when asking people to fill out the questionnaire items on the streets. Last but not the least, they realized that the Internet can really help them do 'serious' jobs.
