Tiertime at TCT Asia + Personalize 2016.
During the 3D Printing Summit – ‘3D Printing - A Revolution in the Classroom’ - the Chinese 3D printing company’s first class will take place to support the growing demand for 3D printing technology in the education sector. 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 designed as a supplement to the regular school curricula. The goal is to use 3D printers as a tool to give students the tools to turn their ideas into real-life tangible objects. The program includes in-school curriculum and after-school curriculum primary, junior and senior high schools to promote innovation and independent studies.
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. Tiertime has provided the classic UP Plus 2 and the UP BOX desktop 3D printers for the event to support 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.
Joseph Guo, Marketing Director of Tiertime, commented: "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.”
"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.
During the show, Tiertime will also showcase its latest machine, the UP mini 2 3D printer. This is the first time the machine will be demonstrated in China since its launch at CES 2016 in Las Vegas.
