1. Description of Our Community
Taiwan locates at the west of Taiwan Strait. It is a bridge that connects Pacific Ocean and China. Since the businesses between countries become much busier, ports have been renewed frequently, and Kaohsiung plays an important role in it. Kaohsiung was called “takau” until Japanese colonic rule, Japanese rewrote as Kaohsiung with the assonance of “takau”, carrying out the assonance in 1920. During the Japanese colonial period, the Kaohsiung port was built, and the purpose was to use it as a gangplank to extend the colony toward to Southeast Asia. The busy port operation contributed the economic prosperity of Kaohsiung and made it the second biggest city in Taiwan. The special shape, path of the river and mountain here, made it a nature shield to the Kaohsiung port .The scenery is very beautiful and it differs from season to season. It also ornaments every corner in Kaohsiung. The friendliness and enthusiasm of these people melt the ice-cold atmosphere of the urbanization. Here, Kaohsiung is surrounded by love, harmonious and sea breeze.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome
We didn’t have ample time to spare, Because we spent too much time thinking the design of web, and writings, Which made us really nervous. Sacrificing much of our free time, and seniors from time to time to supervise us, we finally got back to the right path.
5. Our Project Sound Bite
We had a hard time doing the Cyber fair. Although we had repeatedly rebuffed by respondents, we never give up. Owing to our enthusiasm and spirit of perseverance, we still learn a lot and gained lots of presious memories. Our skills such as dealing with people ,discussing, timing, and communicate with teamwork have progresses in the process , but it gave us more chances of hone. These cooperation and efforts would become our sweetest memories.
6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
Originally, we live in this scenic city, Kaohsiung. After data collection, site visits and special experiences, we have known more harbor culture about Kaohsiung. Therefore, took part in the Taiwan Cyberfair is a great opportunity for us to merge our practical experiences and the knowledge in the textbook. Perhaps, we usually can only be e, but by interviewing and discussing with our members again and again, let us closer to the local people, and things. In addition to having more communication experiences and adaptability, but we also saw the value of the industry, historical changes and moved, thinking carefully again about the message which provided by respondents and historical data, those traces of past showed vividly in our mind. After we deeply experience the things that schools do not teach us, they become our future collection of the most valuable experiences.
