1. Description of Our Community
Our school is located in Da-an District, Taipei City.Taipei is Taiwan's best city. There are about 260 million people in Taipei City.Taiwan currently has four nuclear power plants, of which three are running.Northern two nuclear power plants and the nuclear power plant, which is going to stop building, is within 40 km from downtown Taipei.Once a nuclear disaster occurs, it is bound to evacuate more people.At the same time, it is difficult to imagine the consequences.It will make the island into crisis.Taiwan did not happen nuclear disasters in the past.The Government does not provide enough information to the general public, so the general public does not think nuclear disaster would happen and would not notice how to prevent nuclear disaster. But now, we should learn lessons from the Fukushima nuclear disaster. The government and the people should have a sense of crisis for related disaster preparedness, or it will be too late.
2. Summary of Our Project
Recently, the news topic is often related to the nuclear power plant issue. Without nuclear power, what will replace nuclear energy?Will alternative energy sources increase the cost of electricity generation, electricity and affect people's livelihood, quality of power supply?Will alternative energy sources be relatively clean without pollution?Although nuclear power is known as clean energy, accidents happened at Three Mile Island of the United States, Chernobyl of Russia, and Fukushima of Japan.Once a nuclear disaster occurs, it not only has a significant impact on the economy, and even threatens the health and lives of residents.For ecology, the impact is great.At present, Taiwan society appears possession of nuclear / anti-nuclear different sounds. Possession of nuclear side considers nuclear power is clean, safe, and cheap. Anti-nuclear party advocates renewable energy is safe, environmentally friendly, sustainable use.In any case, as part of living in Taiwan, we should cherish our beautiful land, and plan for a good living environment.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome
[Collection and collation of data] After we determine the topic, we spent a lot of effort to find relevant information from internet and library.Because of too much relevant information, we put a lot of effort on assigning each person to read and finally discussed with the teacher.We had a lot of effort in data compilation.We organized the interview content, recorded respondents' thoughts and after finishing, we showed respondents draft for double check.Although we had to spend more time, but we thought we can make the whole case study more complete. ?Terminology? Since the case study based on the theme of nuclear power plants, it includes nuclear-related terminologies involved, so we felt difficult when we wrote the content.Therefore, we must learn the relevant technical terms in advance. [Dfficulties] When making web pages, we need to use a lot of software.To us, it’s hard. So we asked help from the teachers, and practice again and again.Finally, we all became more familiar on the page making and had a lot of confidence.
5. Our Project Sound Bite
In this learning journey, we involved in case study and learned a lot of valuable experience and knowledge. From the process of data collection and visit, we have a deeper understanding of energy, nuclear disaster, environmental protection and other related subjects. In the process, we got not only help, but also a lot of encouragement and support from the teachers and other people.
6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
First, the combination of environmental education programs Purpose of environmental education is to cultivate people's awareness of environmental protection and local care, and teach us the correct protection central knowledge, attitude and behavior of caring for the environment, then work together to create a more healthy and comfortable living environment. With environmental education course, let us understand the pros and cons of nuclear power and green energy more, and hope that we can care for our communities and the planet in correct way. Second, the combination of local education courses We used Wednesday afternoon to do data collection and film, then edited the information and research result on a web page to share with people.Hope you can learn more about our home environment, and hope you guard our home with concrete actions. Third, the combination of nature and life science and technology courses Through science and technology tools - digital cameras, digital voice recorder, we gathered up the things we visited.At the same time, we also queried information through the internet, and transmitted our study and research progress reports on time to Internet.More importantly, we used all kinds of hardware and software tools which we have learned to make a web page to share what we learned. Fourth, the combination of mathematics courses In this case study, the research questionnaire design is one of our sources. After questionnaire classification, statistics, computer key-in work, finally analysis showed.
