Dec 12, Makeblock brought its all-age STEAM products and education solution to 2019 Shanghai International STEAM education Expo. Makeblock CEO & founder Jasen Wang was invited to give a speech on today’s education and discuss the potential direction where education moves with educational experts and practitioners.
Shanghai International STEAM Educational Fair 2019 is the first and only STEAM fair in China and worldwide. It is fully dedicated to the STEAM concept and products; presenting its most advanced and leading-edge products to the public. Makeblock, as the leading STEAM education solution provider in China, not only demonstrated the educational robot products – from entry-level robot mTiny, Codey Rocky, to professional maker’s favorite mCreate and laserbox – but also introduced the brand concept and its vision of education.
“The education we have now is trying to use the method in the 19th century to teach the kids born in the 20th century, to embrace the challenges in the 21st century,” Jasen said. He raised commonly existed issues in education and shared his observation. “STEAM education emphasizes practice, trans-curriculum model to compensate the unbalanced knowledge that departmental teaching brings to the students. It is the direction that our education is moving towards in the future.”
