1. Description of Our Community
Chiayi is a county that relies on the sea, so the marine resources are very rich. Chiayi is one of the important producing areas of oysters in Taiwan. As environmental issues are gradually taken seriously, so is the protection of the marine environment. In recent years, in addition to the establishment of a marine education center, Chiayi has promoted plastic reduction activities and is looking forward to restoring the original ecology and environment of the ocean.
2. Summary of Our Project
In 2009, the Chiayi County Government established the Chiayi Marine Education Center in our school. At the same time, Mr. Shell also donated the collected shells to the school to set up the shell museum as a teaching study. The school also established a shell community. In addition to the knowledge about shells, there are also the training of guides. Because of the establishment of the Shell Museum, guests often come to the school to visit the shells. Therefore, we take this one of the few Taiwanese communities with shells as the research theme as this special study.

4. Problems We Had To Overcome
In fact, there was another scientific research in our class, so there was no time to do research on the shell community. It was not until January 2019 that we had time to do it, so many things had to be completed within two months. Fortunately, with the help of a community teacher, we were able to complete the visit before the winter vacation. Another thing to overcome is that one of the classmates in our class also participated in the shell community and later withdrew. Although some things about the community can ask her, it will be clear after I have to go to class. Later, we also asked Mr. Shell to come to our class and have a tour of the Shell Museum to learn more about this community. Everyone found out how interesting the shells are, and also let everyone know the importance of conserving the ocean. .
5. Our Project Sound Bite
Because of the guidance of the teacher and the Mr. Shell, we can learn more about marine conservation.
6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
Every year, our school has arranged marine courses. We have learned a lot about the ecology and environmental issues of the ocean. In this study of the shell community, we learned that human beings are very devastating to the ocean. So, we want to use the internet to the people of the earth can quickly understand that Taiwan has a community that specializes in shells, and also makes people pay more attention to the impact on the environment.
