1. Description of Our Community
The geographical distribution of Taiwan has been very well since the old times. It’s situated between the Pacific Ocean and China, so there were many harbors at the seacoast, one of which is Kaohsiung. At first, Kaohsiung was called “Da Gou”. Japanese changed “Da Gou” into “Kaohsiung” by Japanese. Japan started to make Kaohsiung become a little-scale harbor-city for colonizing Southeast Asia. Therefore, it becomes the second biggest city of Taiwan.
2. Summary of Our Project
We studied Ciaotou again and looked back on its rise and decline. We found it changing ceaselessly and the conventional industry, sugar, also rose and declined with it. While we looked at this place from the history, we can’t let it be forgotten or it may disappear from the world. We hope to hand down these old stories, and let Ciaotou be remembered.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome
? Progress Control: At first, we couldn’t think a good topic, and we even picked up the wrong topic. Therefore, we are lagged behind the schedule. After discussed thoroughly with teachers and listened to their advice, we were getting on track finally. ? Cooperation division of work: Because we are short-handed, we can’t share our works easily. It made the place messy. Through connecting and knowing everyone, we found what we are good at our works. ? Team Communication: At first, we don’t know each other. It made us can’t talk with each other. The place was awkward. Through connecting and knowing everyone, we know each other little by little. ? Technical barriers: Because we do not have enough students in the group of managing documents, we can’t hand in our scripts in time. So we tried to write the article with the students of technical group. After working hard, we finally caught up with the ideal progress.

6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
I remember the saying of Bacon. We should not be like the ant; only collect food! Not like a spider; only snag from his belly; but like bees; be sorted after collection, digestion! This can be the beginning of sweet honey wine. We will apply their knowledge and textbook knowledge to our experience. Participating in Cyberfair is the best path The incomprehensible words of the text make us can't understand it easy. Fortunately, through site visits, we are more close to the local people and things. Each visit, we enhance the experience of ourselves and communication, adaptability, and think about the hidden meaning, which we are unlikely to learn at school.
