From September 13th to October 10th, the first group of Microcampus students (16 SAS students in total, 8 from the Pudong campus and 8 from the Puxi campus) will be leaving to Xizhou, Yunnan and living in a village there for four weeks. During this trip, students will spend a majority of their time working on a project called the Inquiry Project. Our first task of the trip was to finish the first and one of the most difficult steps of the project - picking a topic.

In Phase 0: Topic Exploration and Selection, all of the students chose a topic for their Microcampus inquiry project. The topic I selected to study for our 28 days in Xizhou was Tourism and Development. Now we are in Phase 1: Posing Real Questions, where I will be coming up with 10 main questions for further researching.

In Phase 1: Posing Real Questions, I did some background information research for my Inquiry Project that I will be working on for four weeks in Xizhou. I used this background information to create 10 big questions about my topic "Tourism and Development". Now in Phase 2, I will learn how to find helpful resources to help me answer my ten questions.

Here in Phase 3, I will be storing all of my research facts and information. In section 1 and 4, I will show my background research about my topic (Tourism and Development) and answers to my Big 10 Questions from Phase 1. In section 2 and 3, I will be storing all facts and resources I get from my interviews from Phase 2

In Phase 4, I will be planning what I am going to do for my final product. Since I have all the information I need, I have to determine how I will represent them. I have looked at some previous Inquiry Projects.
