2) In what ways did you act as "ambassadors" and spokespersons for your CyberFair project both on-line and in person.
1.The New Force of Community Culture and Industrial Inheritance:
Through participating in the research project, we found that most of the students were pretty keen on participating in it and learning about traditional industries related knowledge. Their interests to have a profound exploration into the development history and obstacles of different industries had been aroused, which further spurred the traditional industries heritage and carry it forward.
2.Expert Expedition who Learnt and Pass On the Spirit of Traditional Industries:
Aside from going on field trips to Ben Feng Farm, Mushroom Tribe, Pin Rui Farm, Shetou Township Fu Jing Restaurant and Shetou Xin He Chun Soy Sauce Factory, we hope to arouse people’s interest in community’s industrial culture and preservation of relics, further devoting to promote local characteristic development.
3) What has been the impact of your project on your community?
After many field trips and much time put in information search, we got to know a lot of things we didn’t know: many industrial cultures in Yuanlin Area, Changhua County, for example, mushrooms planting, soy sauce and railway relic museum.we did not know that there are many railway scenic spots and historical relic halls in Changhua County. Therefore, we want to share our acquired knowledge and experience with more out-of-towners through the website, so that they will be encouraged to visit these community spots which will lead to an animation of local tourism industry and tourist attractions. In the process of our study, we received the supports not only from the school but also from the community and people from the town or from other towns. There was an intertwining connection between the school and the community, and that made us feel the warmhearted hospitality of our hometown. We hope our website show the world the beauty of industrial characteristics and relics in Yuanlin, Changhua, and we also aim to draw people’s attention to their values, which will benefit local tourism industry.

5) Discoveries, Lessons and Surprises (Optional)
Discoveries: 1. It turns out that Yuanlin area is not only famous for tire industry, mushroom planting and soy sauce factory are also its characteristics. 2. Railway related relics had not been quite nicely preserved and many of them had been dismantled sequentially. Fortunately, there were many rail fans that made efforts to protect the relics from damages and turned them into local attractions. They attract many people from different places and that is a brilliant promotion of the local tourism.
Lessons: 1. Before the interview, we need to absorb a lot of information and practice asking questions; otherwise, we will not know what to ask during the interview. 2. Remember to take notes because you will need them to remind you of the important details. 3. Finish taking notes of the interview right after the interview is done; otherwise, you will not have a clear memory of it. 4. Save the files in many places and make good use of online hard drive so you don’t lose them by accident. 5. There is always a possibility of divergences in opinions and things don’t always go our ways. We have to be prepared for different possibilities.
Surprise: 1. After participating in the research project, we realized that our hometown Yuanlin area is a strikingly special place in Changhua County. It affects livelihood economy profoundly and that arouses our vigor to value industrial culture. We hope that there are more and more people to carry on the spirit of these experts and pass the industry on.
