How does our research project fit into the Grade 1-9 Curriculum and the school-based curriculum?
Language Arts /Mandarin
      We needed to use our own language skills in completing interview manuscripts, records, interviews, and research data. During the interview process, we needed to carefully observe the surroundings and record the key points. We used recording pen, camera and other electronic technology as a better tool to integrate the information contents. In the interview or questionnaire, we also needed to have better oral expression ability. After completion of the interview, we need to display the audio files in a text form, and highlight the contents. In order to accurately convey the complete messages of the interviewees, understanding ability is very important.
      In the survey, we used print questionnaire forms because carrying pens and paper to the survey site is very convenient. Everyone was probably responsible for ten questionnaires. It is important to accurately calculate the time needed for statistics and collation.
      For this Cyberfair project, we not only collected lot of historical and cultural information, but also visited the local environment. We used text and images to show the local people, landscape and environment of this area, and expect the public can understand the beauty of the surrounding attractions of Longdong Bay. By close to nature, they can care for nature and life. At the same time, this can enhance our understanding of local and national identity.
Arts and Humanities 
       This Cyberfair project uses the concept of harmony between man and society, and between man and nature to better life. We also use this opportunity to explore people and sceneries with sensory perception and enjoy the beautiful natural scenery in the environment. We also needed to use the concept of aesthetics to deliver harmonious and aesthetic pictures for the web pages. Moreover, Photoshop technique is needed to show better photos.
Science and Technology 
      Snorkeling itself is the best choice to be close to the nature. Through personal experience, we can understand how beautiful our ocean, and see many creatures. However, we also found there are large amount of human-made garbage in the ocean. When we arrived there, typhoon just had occurred a few days ago. We witnessed the consequences of the powerful typhoon, and garbage which was fished by park workers were piled on the coast. During snorkeling in the ocean, the garbage hit our head. After experiencing the snorkeling, we are determined to protect our ocean and will not litter garbage.
Integrative Activities  
      In this Cyberfair project, we combined a variety of learning elements to learn in multiple ways, and meanwhile we learned to cooperate and share joys and sorrows with our teammates to complete the web pages, which deepened our friendship. This is very important. Besides, we learned to spare no effort on everything. We should clearly know deadline of submission of the interview results and completion of other work, so that we will not lag behind the progress and drag others.

What information tools & technologies did you used to complete your Cyberfair project?
       The most information homework for us is form the “27CWSC digital platform”. Using these network platforms in school, we can upload our work and interview information. We can also discuss our thoughts in this place and share all kinds of information. With 27CWSC digital platform, even if we could not attend research meetings, we can keep up with everyone's progress.

In what ways did you act as "ambassadors" and spokespersons for your Cyberfair project both on-line and in person.
      Longdong Bay is a beautiful and natural attraction. In order to let us learn more about it, our teacher arranged a lot of activities for us, including going snorkeling at Longdong Bay Ocean Park, visiting Bitou Cape Trail, Longdong Bay Cape Trail, and Old Caoling Tunnel. In addition, we interviewed the local snorkeling instructor, tour guide and so on. Through these activities, we learned a lot of valuable experience and knowledge. Besides life saving skills, we understood the significance of snorkeling. With these experience, we get closer to the ocean.
      The journey to the trails around Longdong Bay allows us to comprehend the magic and ingenuity of the Creator. We also learned that the living things and the landscape here are worth treasuring. We hope that we can share these precious experience and discoveries with the public through our project.
How did other members of your locality assist or take part in your research project?
       With the opportunity of doing this project, we visited Coach Te-Cheng Yin, a four-star coach in the Association of Diving School International (ADS), and Manager Hsiu-Chuan Lin, the project manager at Longdong Bay Ocean Park. Mr. Yung-lung Lin and Mr. Hsiao-ming Chen, the directors of the Yilan Coast National Scenic Area Administration in the northeast corner, Wei-You Shih of Xiangzhou Travel Agency. We are grateful for their support and assistance to our research, so that we could get more familiar with the human geography of Longdong Bay. In addition, we would like to thank the visitors who are very enthusiastic to help us finish our questionnaires. With their help, our visit program was very successful.
What has been the impact of your project on your project team members?
     Snorkeling is an important water sports activities in Longdong Bay, we have a new understand of the ocean by snorkeling. By snorkeling, we found out how interesting the marine ecology is. We are very surprised to see so many marine life around us. How were people not touched by this beautiful landscape and ecology. But human pollution of the environment is also worsening, even marine litter can be seen in protected waters. The rich culture and geographical environment of Longdong Bay not only let us learn more knowledge but also nourish our hearts. Moreover, making this project makes us understand the greatness and beauty of nature, and remind us the importance of cherishing our Mother Earth.
Did you respect intellectual property rights and use references?
      Every part of the information on this website came from our own interviews, or our own selections from the student data and photos that the teachers gave us. During the interviews, we informed all those being interviewed that the content of the interview would be placed on the website and asked for their consent. We also informed classmates who provided pieces and teachers providing photographs or video that the content would be placed on a website and asked for their consent.
Discoveries, lessons and surprises
      We were afraid whether the activities would be canceled because the typhoon occurred in Longdong Bay one week ago. Fortunately, the plan remained unchanged. When we arrived at the site, the garbage was carried by the typhoon to the coast and the park workers were using shovels to put the garbage into the bags. The bags filled with driftwood and garbage was piled up as high as people. However, there was still much garbage scattered on the ground. It seemed the cleaning was endless. In addition, large driftwood and garbage was so much that it is hard to image, and was stuck in the floater, and drifted in the ocean. When we went snorkeling, several hours passed, and however there were still many plastic bags, pet bottle caps and EPS in the ocean. Some were hit by the driftwood. This snorkeling will be unforgettable because we not only appreciated the beauty of Taiwan and the ocean, but also found the ocean crisis and the creature killer and ecological catastrophe. We learned that: We only have one earth, and the ocean is not a landfill. If all the garbage is thrown into the ocean, we will no longer see these beautiful creatures and the environment! After learning the lesson from this experience, we will not litter garbage. In order to protect our earth and ocean, we must reduce garbage and sort and recycle it!
