1. Description of Our Community
Sakakpo is an ancient place in Huayang community, Changhua. It is a delta located between the Kengzainei rivers.
2. Summary of Our Project
The project introduces the '3gapu mesona'. Mesona is a plant in the mint family. We can make jelly out of mesona by boiling it for hours and cooling the liquid. Grass jelly dessert made of mesona is very popular in Taiwan. '3gapu mesona' is a very famous and popular shop registered by Mr. Yang Jiazheng, the fourth generation of the Yang family. The Yang family's residence is located in an alley of Sakakpo. The nearby market knows that this family is making mesona. It has been refined according to the ancient method for a hundred years. They used to boil the mesona grass all year round, and the nearby neighbors could always smell the faint fragrance of the grass. I heard that even Nanguo Elementary School could scent the fragrance!

4. Problems We Had To Overcome
We encountered many problems when conducting this project. For example, because the students are in different grades, we can only meet together at noon. The time for discussion was limited, so we met once a week. At the moment, the teacher helped everyone arrange the progress, guided everyone in the project's direction, and taught computer skills. At first, no one knew how to design web pages. Instead, the teacher taught us slowly. Gradually, we became familiar with it. Finally, we used three months to organize photos and materials and then made a web page.
5. Our Project Sound Bite
Participation in International Schools CyberFair can enrich our view of international. Most importantly, we can introduce local cultures in Taiwan to the world.
6. How did your activities and research for this CyberFair Project support standards, required coursework and curriculum standards?
We hope that through the '3gapu mesona' project, we can cultivate students' ability to take away, such as plan formulation, data collection, interviews, web page production skills, etc. Through the writing of interview drafts, experience, and research journals, students' writing ability is trained and combined with the 'language learning field.' Learn to use the Internet, computer, and mobile phone to search for information, learn to take pictures with a camera, learn how to edit images, learn how to create web pages, and combine with the 'Nature and Life Science and Technology Learning Area.'
