1. Description of Our Community
The community we researched is Wanhua district in Taipei. The original name of Wanhua district is Monga, which is the transliteration from the aboriginal language of Ketagalan, meaning the pirogue. Wanhua is one of representative districts of Taiwan. Since it is the origin of the capital, it not only plays an important role in the history of Taipei, but also the premier district of Din Tao arts.
2. Summary of Our Project
The local culture and belief are parts of Taiwan traditional custom. Although it has been a long time in the history of Din Tao, the culture is in decline in the modern society. Fortunately, the recent movie, Din Tao: Leader of Parade, shooting by a Taiwanese director, Fung Kai, has aroused concern of young generations and the public. We will try to break the stereotype of Din Tao in our project to create an environment fitting with this Taiwanese tradition.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome
We have been through the challenge of time arrangement, differences of opinion and serious argument. However, we did not give up and solved problems together. Even though the project was exhausting and time-consuming, we never felt regretted. We have tried our best to present Din Tao culture and will prove our success to everyone.
5. Our Project Sound Bite
To enjoy the sweetness of success, you have to never give up with perseverance. We started without understanding the local arts. After the project research, now, we want to promote the beuty of Din Tao arts to the world.
6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
We have learned many things which are not in the school syllabus. We have learned proper manners and communication skills during interview and questionnaire. We have applied what we study beyond data searching and having fun during the production. Everyone has put a lot of effort in the research. We persisted together and have learned the importance of team work through the frustration of disappointment and complain. Everyone has tried their best and been responsible to their part of work. Because of the competition, we have learned a lot both in the ways of academic and value of life. It was not easy but it is worth it.
