Project elements

. How did your activities and research for this International Schools CyberFair project support content standards, required coursework and curriculum requirements?

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.'

. What information tools and technologies did you use to complete your CyberFair project?

We use three desktop computers and three cell phones and the following software, including DreamWeaver, PhotoImpact, Word 2016, and Google Chrome, to collect photos and related content. 

. In what ways did your students act as "ambassadors" and spokespersons for your CyberFair project both on-line and in person.

We introduce the '3gapu Mesona' project to teachers and students in morning-study time. We also did project briefings in the class for some classes. After finishing the project, we put together all the results into a website with pictures and texts so that everyone can learn more about the local specialty '3gapu Mesona' through the Internet.

. What has been or will be the impact of your project on your community?

We hope more and more people, especially the foreign visitors, can know about the local cultures in Changhua. Especially the local cuisine is not only 'kong rou fan' (soy-stewed pork with rice) or ba wan (mega-dumpling) but also Mesona jelly. 

. How did your project involve other members of your community as helpers and volunteers?

 The owner of '3gapu Mesona', Mr. Yang Jiazheng help us to complete the project.

. Were there interesting discoveries you made, lessons you learned, or surprises that occurred as a result of this project? If so, take the time to share these insights and observations with your audience. Did this project lead to other awards or recognitions?

We love Mesona jelly. However, we do not understand what it is and how it is made until the accomplishment of this project. It is not easy work to make Mesona juice. First, picking good-quality Mesona takes time. Sometimes, you need to go to many places to find out good Mesona. Second, cooking Mesona needs not only time but also patience to repeatedly taste and boil. The flavor all depends on experience and ancestral secret recipes. It is no wonder that '3gapu Mesona' can be passed down for hundreds of years and from generation to generation.

. Intellectual property rights and Citation Notes

Most of the words used in the topic were compiled by the children during the interviews, and the photos were also taken by the children or the instructor during the research process.

In addition, I would like to thank for the authorization of '3gapu Mesona' Main Store and '3gapu Mesona' Shilin Store for allowing us to take photos and post them on the Internet.
