If you didn’t get a chance to make it to the Innovation Expo at the International School of Beijing (ISB) last Saturday, you missed out!
The event was open to the public and free. Students of all ages got amazing hands on experiences with workshops ranging in difficulty from making an art bot (for kids ages 2-10 with a parent, 10+ without) to making an electronic guitar or game controller (for kids ages 8+, 10+ respectively). Many more workshops and activities kept students engaged for the whole afternoon.
The event lasted for six hours and included presentations for ISB’s upcoming middle school drama, student projects in technology, space, robotics, design, music, visual arts, physics, photography, radio, film, and inventions. Professional displays were primarily showcasing Makers from Beijing Maker Space, Creatica, CAFA, and Tianjin Art Academy. Tsinghua Unviersity gave virtual reality demos while ISB held their own 3D printing display.
