The closing ceremony of the 10th Science and Technology Festival was held as scheduled on the afternoon of Nov.26th on SESID Puxi Campus. The closing ceremony was divided into two parts: the summary and commendation and the wonderful booth activities of all grades
Ms. Xia, the general director of Science and Technology, summarized various activities with the theme of "integration". Watching exhibition, attending lectures, making models, watching movies with VR glasses, designing English tabloids and other wonderful activities integrate teenagers' dreams and interests, so that students could start to feel the light of science and technology. Subsequently, Ms. Xia praised all the award-winning students. They won precious certificates through active participation, careful production and in-depth research.
Teachers began to prepare booth activities of all grades as early as a month ago. Each grade was in charge of one series of scientific experience activity. Everyone learned scientific knowledge and felt the happiness brought by science and technology. They had a wonderful afternoon in the laughter and excitement.
The first grade booth provided you with a microscope experience. Through electron microscope and optical microscope, children could observe their favorite specimen slices, such as pollen, algae, small insects, plant stems, etc. Through the eyepiece and adjusting the magnification, children clearly saw the microscopic world that was difficult to see with the naked eye. In addition, cell and virus models were set up to let children understand their structure more intuitively; At the same time, the popular science video of "cell virus war" was played. It was provided by Shanghai Pasteur Institute of Chinese Academy of Science. Children also experienced 3D face recognition technology.
The second grade group brought VR glasses to the whole school! During the activity, the students put on VR glasses and "dived" into the deep blue sea, "flew" into the vast outer space, or "crossed" history and met with ancient poetry... Children were amazed! They felt the charm of scientific and technological innovation in the new audio-visual experience and the joy brought by technology!
The third grade booth was both dynamic and static, with AI interactive experience area and learning area. AI experience activities have attracted many AI fans. The second and third graders happily experienced the red and blue bumper car, while the fourth and fifth graders experienced the ball sucking war. Before the activity, teachers told the children about the principle and process of machine construction, and then showed the actual control. The children listened carefully, devoted themselves and had a good time. While waiting in line, children could interact with the dancing pepper robot. They could also observe the robot arm and the ecological circulation fish tank. The manganese nodule samples and ocean models were also introduced to the children. In addition, the huge LEGO model in the learning area showed the process of the automatic treatment line of waste refrigerators. From crushing to sorting, it completely restored the process of recycling various constituent substances of waste refrigerators. Children knew more about the urban mining industry and understand what is circular economy, which enhanced the concept of environmental protection.
The fourth grade's science experience began with an ‘ice and fire’ science show. Children enjoyed the magical experiment and walked into the secret of liquid nitrogen. Teacher Weiwei put a grape into liquid nitrogen. In a few seconds, it became a hard block, and was broken by a hammer. When she poured boiling water into the extremely cold liquid nitrogen, a huge "mushroom cloud" erupted. They also participated in scientific challenges such as air cannon, bubble show, etc. As a reward, the participants could taste delicious and magical "liquid nitrogen popcorn" which was cold and ejected white gas from your mouth. CidLab showed us the process of machines supervised learning and unsupervised learning. Car LCD (by class 4-1) told us the wonderful internal screen of cars in the future. Fire engine model (by class 4-3) displayed the use of different types of fire engines.
In the fifth grade booth, children tried to use astronomical telescopes and AI rope skipping. Through AI technology, they also experienced the 3D animation of the Forbidden City calendar and site of the first National Congress. There was a long line in front of Intelligent input AI mouse. It turned out that the children were actively trying out the real-time translation function and got a big gift bag! The air water machine has won the unanimous favor of the children. By using only one dollar, the children not only understood the operation principle of the machine, but also showed their love to a big sister who was sick.
Technology changes life and technology changes the future. Science and Technology Festival is an opportunity for us to participate in various scientific activities and experienced the infinite fun and charm! The seeds of science take root, germinate and blossom in the hearts of students!
