The “Shanghai Science and Technology Museum Youth Maker Camp” successfully held
On July 25, the final review and closing ceremony of the “Shanghai Science and Technology Museum Youth Maker Camp” event was held at the Shanghai Science and Technology Museum. During the two-week event, forty-three students turned from visitors to exhibit designers. In the process of “observing, thinking, and practicing,” they adopted project thinking to learn industrial design, and used maker materials, the programming language Scratch, 3D printing technology, etc., to optimize and innovate exhibits, which further aroused their interest in and deepened their understanding of science.
The Maker Camp is a new educational activity brand launched by the Shanghai Science and Technology Museum in 2019. It aims to allow students to use the maker thinking to solve various problems in life. In the process of completing tasks, students are trained to develop their maker spirit and project-oriented thinking, which helps establish a close relationship between individuals and society. The theme of this year’s “Shanghai Science and Technology Museum Youth Maker Camp” is “Exhibit Designer.” All the students were divided into 13 teams and carried out activities such as project thinking training, research and exploration, plan modification, construction and production, and results display, etc.
