BEIJING, March 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Beijing Tiertime Technology Co. Ltd. (Tiertime) debuted the Cool-Camp Education Program for K-12 on the TCT + Personalize Asia from March 10th to 12th in Shanghai, China. It will also hold its first public open class during the 3D Printing Summit, "3D Printing -- A Revolution in the Classroom," on March 12th .
The event is organized by Shanghai Educational Press Group and TCT Magazine, and co-organized by Tiertime. Mr. Zhang Minsheng, former Deputy Director of the Shanghai Municipal Education Commission, will give a speech entitled "The Future Trend of the Development of Education Informationization."
The Cool-Camp Education Program is developed as a supplement to the regular school curricula. The goal is to use 3D printers as a tool to give students tangible perceptions of the knowledge that otherwise can be perceived only by imagination. The program includes in-school curriculum and after-school curriculum for K-12 schools to promote innovation and independent studies. The curricula are developed based on different grades and subjects for primary, junior and senior high schools.
In the "Classroom," teachers and students from Shanghai Xiangming Junior High School and Tianshan No.1 Primary School will give a live presentation of the 3D printing open class. Mr. Baylor He, an expert of Education Program from Tiertime, will present a detailed introduction of the Cool-Camp Education Program.
"Tiertime has always regarded the K-12 education as a key area of 3D printing innovation. Supporting the event of '3D Printing -- A Revolution in the Classroom' is a showcase of our commitment to joining in the education reform in China for the innovative education for students of the future," says Mr. Joseph Guo, Marketing Director of Tiertime.
"The curricula provide a distinctive way of learning the knowledge from textbooks. Students grasp the ideas faster and get more involved by building the physical objects by themselves using 3D printers as a tool," commented Miss Wang Meng, the instructor of the open class from Shanghai Xiangming Junior High School, about the Cool-Camp Education Program and UP 3D printers of Tiertime after using them in class.
