On November 18th, 2017, I will be leaving Shanghai with my Microcapmus team and staying in XiZhou for 28 days. During that time, we will be working on a project called the Inquiry Project to build our knowledge of the local culture. Before we were even selected to participate in this program, we were given a digital document on our laptop that lists all the possible choices for our Inquiry projects. As I scrolled through the list of topics, a series of questions popped up in my mind. How exactly are we going to study these topics in XiZhou?

In Phase 0, I chose my final topic, which was Food Products/Cuisine, for my inquiry project. Now, in Phase 1, I will be continuing with research on my topic, enhancing background knowledge, and creating important questions for me to answer while in Xizhou.

During the previous phase, Phase 1, I created some big questions that will help guide me through my research in XiZhou. In this phase, I will start finding helpful resources that might lead me to some interesting answers or even new questions.

About This Learner

Hi everyone, my name is Chris L., 13 years old, and I was part of the 21st Microcampus group: Ultimate. I am back in Shanghai now, and I am getting used to my old schedule. Microcampus has truly been a phenomenal trip. I will always remember all the experiences that I had at Microcampus, the good times and the bad. Through overcoming these tough times, I have learned many life lessons that will definitely help me in the future. Furthermore, I would like to take the time here to thank the Microcampus coordinators, Mr. Tafel and MS. Mai, for making this trip possible. I could not have survived in Xizhou without their help. Over the course of that month, I have grown so much in so many different ways, and I have adopted good habits that will stay with me forever.
