. Project Title: 3gapu Mesona

. Description of Our Community

Sakakpo is an ancient place in Huayang community, Changhua. It is a delta located between the Kengzainei rivers.

. Summary of Our Project

The project introduces the "3gapu Mesona". Mesona is a plant in the mint family. We can make a jelly out of Mesona by boiling it for hours and cooling the liquid into a jelly. Mesona jelly is a traditional local cuisine 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 Yang family used the ancient secrets to cook Mesona for a hundred years, and the nearby neighbors could always smell the faint fragrance of the grass. I heard that even Nanguo Elementary School could scent the fragrance!

. Our Computer/Internet Access

Each student uses the Internet at home, and each classroom has one computer. We use a fiber-optic network to get online in school and three cell phones and the following software, including DreamWeaver, PhotoImpact, Word 2016, and Google Chrome, to collect photos and related content.

. Problems We Had to Overcome

We encountered many problems when conducting this project. For example, we can only meet at noon every Thursday because the students are in different grades. The time for discussion was limited. At the moment, the teacher helped everyone arrange the progress, guided students in the project's direction, and taught them program skills. At first, no one knew how to design web pages. The teacher taught students slowly. Gradually, students became familiar with it and we used three months to organize photos and materials and then made a web page.

. Experience feelings

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, take pictures with a camera, edit images, create web pages, and combine with the 'Nature and Life Science and Technology Learning Area.

Participation in International Schools CyberFair can enrich our view of international. Most importantly, we can introduce local cultures and cuisine in Taiwan to the world.
