Starting April 30, 2016, a group of students from Shanghai American School Pudong will have the chance to travel to a small village in South Yunnan for a period of 28 days. While in this village, we will be working on a large project about some aspect of the village we choose to investigate. We will be spending much time interviewing the local people about their experiences with our chosen topic and how this topic has played a role in the culture there.

In Phase 1, I stated my previous knowledge of my inquiry topic of green energy and came up with ten Big Questions to focus on during my time in Xizhou. Here in Phase 2, I will be finding resources to help me with my research and help me answer my Big Questions or raise more.
