1. Description of Our Community
We live in Zhongli, a town of Taoyuan City, Taiwan. There is the largest airport here, our lives are very convenient and international. Taoyuan is also an industrial castle. The city goal is to develop technology products. There are some companies here produce “plant-based meat”. Although countless dishes here are great, plant-based meat has a lot of benefits that we don't know. Let's discover it together.
2. Summary of Our Project
There are more and more meat lovers in the world. Since 2013, the supply of meat to everyone in Taiwan has up to 77.69 kilograms. Eating large numbers of meat will produce lots of gas and might cause “global warming”. Some vegetarians eat “plant-based meat” instead of meat and some people take “plant-based meat” as the second choice of protein. But not everyone can accept it. Some people think “plant-based meat” is more environmentally friendly. It also looks and tastes like the real one. Other people think that “plant-based meat” is not made from real ingredients. After reading lots of news, reports and having an interview with Uncle Frank who works at SONG_XHEN, the biggest famous company in Taoyuan. Then we have the answer. Which one is better for us, good for our health and protect our planet?

4. Problems We Had To Overcome
First, because of COVID-19, we couldn't visit SONG-ZEN biotechnology in person. Instead, we chose GOOGLE Meet to go on an online interview with Uncle Frank who is a sales manager in SONG-ZHEN. An online meeting may be a little inconvenient, but we still tried our best to prepare for the interview. Second, the group members come from different classes. We don't have enough time to work on the project together. It's a big problem for us, and we only can use some break time to discuss the project. Luckily, we did it, and we enjoyed all the time that we worked together. Finally, the most difficult thing we had faced is designing the website for our project. We tried a new way to make it, and it took us much time to finish it. After some try and error, we finally completed our project and finished the website.
5. Our Project Sound Bite
To meet the standards of the CyberFair theme this year, we had chosen to learn and discover “plant-based meat”. Through it, we wanted to know more about this kind of meat and find the best diet to keep environmental sustainability.
6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
Our project is about plant-based meat. We hope through this project, people from different countries will know more about this. We did some research and had some actions to take our project to the next level. Such as have an interview with Uncle Frank who works in SONG-ZHEN, the most famous 'plant-based meat'company, in Taoyuan, join the flea market at school and introduce it to our friends with a game, etc. Also, we’re grateful that everyone we asked for help is so friendly and enthusiastic. For example, Mr. Jiang(Uncle Frank), the staff in SONG-ZHEN, taught us a lot of useful information. Next, Internet tools are useful for us because we could save and share knowledge easily. Through this project, we learned the importance of teamwork and some useful technique skills. We believe that all the things we learned will help us someday in the future.
