3D Printing Manufacturer Tiertime Announces the Cool-Camp Education Program for K-12 on TCT Asia

leave a comment »

BEIJING /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 Chinafor 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.

As a Diamond Sponsor of TCT Asia, 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.

In the past years, Infinitus has incorporated CSR into its development strategy and published its CSR report for 8 consecutive years. The reports reveal to the employees the social significance of their work and deepen their understanding of social responsibilities. The Company established the Si Li Ji Ren Foundation to promote public health, poverty alleviation, educational support, disaster relief and empowerment of disadvantaged groups. The Foundation initiated the Si Li Ji Ren Education Dream Support Program and other innovative public welfare projects. Furthermore, Infinitus emphasizes on the “Feel Good” Index of its employees by providing them with diversified entertainment and on-the-job training. The Company also motivates its stakeholders toestablish a community based on responsibility in order to form a system of social responsibility.

In recent decades, sub-health condition has been prevailing around the globe. Under such circumstances, Infinitus proposed the health philosophy of “promoting healthy life through life nurturing and vitality assurance”. The philosophy embodies a simple and practicable guide with Four Regulations (rational diet, rest, exercise and positive thinking).

Since 2010, Infinitus has organized and promoted the Infinitus World Walking Day event, which is further enhanced by the Infinitus Life Nurturing Walking Day and the online-offline interactive 10,000-Step Walking Club app. These efforts have helped develop a healthy lifestyle. A total of 105 sessions have been held under Infinitus’ walking events series,drawing participation of more than 980,000, with a total walking mileage of 5.25 million kilometers, equivalent to orbiting the earth 131 times.

At the 13th International Conference & Exhibition of the Modernization of Chinese Medicine & Health Products (ICMCM), Infinitus joined with MCMIA Foundation and Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC) to initiate the “Infinitus Daily Walk for 10,000 Steps” Campaign in conjunction of the selection campaign of the Most Beautiful 10,000-Step Walking Path, both of which are designed to advocate walking as a daily habit among Hong Kongcitizens. Infinitus has hosted various “Four Regulations” Experience Camps featuring themed lectures and outdoor exercises. The Company has also leveraged new media and mobile apps to promote interaction of employees and business partners, getting more people to join the Four Regulations practice.

Mr. Harry Yeung, Senior Vice President of LKKHPG, said that if a company wants to ensure lasting prosperity and business continuity, it has to rise above itself to think from a systemic perspective. A company that exploits its unique advantages in solving popular social issues will not only enhance social advancement but also reduce the cost, as well as to realize its value in society.

The Caring Company campaign has been held for 14 years, during which commercial agencies and companies with sound record of CSR practice are commended. This event has received warm and wide response from the business and social circles. Hong Kong Council of Social Service, the host of this event, boasts a membership of over 390 entities, providing over 90 percent of the social services for Hong Kong citizens. They commented that this event, aimed at partnering up the business sector and social services, has urged the companies to fulfill CSR and encouraged the industrial, business players and public institutions to care for the community, their employees and the environment so as to build an inclusive society together.
