Wang Xiaoming, Curator of the SSTM and his group of 6 people participated in the event.
During this journey from 2,950 meters to 5,190 meters above sea level, they walked through different vegetation zones, and into primary and secondary schools, universities, rural communities and museums. In order to bring the best quality science education resources to the Tibetan people, especially the youth, the team members overcame difficulties and go deep into the hinterland of Tibetan areas. They traveled more than 1,840 kilometers in 5 days, through 2 cities and 4 districts and counties, to 1 scientific research observatory, 3 primary and middle schools, 1 university, and 1 museum, and held 2 symposiums, 1 special report, 5 DIY activities, 10 science experiment performances, and 1 popular science lecture, receiving nearly 1,000 visitors on site.
