15 students in the spring of 2016 will be going to a small village in rural Xizhou. This will be the start of a journey that will change our perspective forever, we will each be investigating a topic of our choice in our four weeks in Xizhou. I am honored to be attending Microcampus Group P, and this is basically my brainstorms and ideas that I will be sharing with everyone. I started out with, at least, 10 highlighted interested projects, but I managed to narrow my choices down through my interest and feedback from Mr. T and alumni reflections.

This is my Phase 2 workspace where I will be finding helpful resources that will provide some answers to or help me expand on my ten major questions which I drafted in Phase 1. I will be researching more on my topic and talking to experts and locals to help me further improve my project.

This is Phase 4 of my Inquiry Project where I will be preparing to share and making my outline and plan for my final product. In previous sections, Phase 3, I gathered information from teachers, past alumni, online sources, and local contacts. In Phase 2, I searched for possible resources that I could gather information from.
