In September 2017, the Ministry of Education issued the “Guiding Opinions on the Comprehensive In-depth Promotion of Education Informationization during the 13th Five-Year Plan Period (Draft for Comment), and when it comes to the planning of education informatization in the next five years, it is proposed that schools should explore STEAM education, maker education.
The field of science and technology for young people's drones is very blank. Zhu Ni discovered this and founded Beijing Xiaofeishou Education Technology Co., Ltd. So far, Xiaofeishou Education has become a high-tech enterprise and has been on the New Fourth Board.
Xiaofei's founder, Jenny
01, has the first set of regular publishing materials in the country
Xiaofei's education is mainly for courses, not for drone hardware. Most of the current UAV education fields are for colleges and adults, and the difficulty of teaching materials does not meet the cognitive abilities of young people. How to make primary and secondary school students accept the drone education when learning can be more applicable and efficient, Zhu Ni decided to develop a set of teaching materials. At present, the textbook of Xiaofeishou Education has its own issue number, and it is the first set of systematically published youth drone teaching materials in the country. In addition, the courseware used by Xiaofei's education is also edited by the teachers of Xiaofei's hands. The curriculum is divided into adolescents in elementary, middle and high school, and truly “self-produced”. Xiaofei's latest course, "Unmanned Aircraft Formation Programming Fundamentals" is currently the first in the country.
The results of UAV education and learning need to be tested by drone assembly and operational practices. Most of the drones on the market now have high prices and are used to limit the practice of primary and secondary school students. For example, many children will not dare to fly because they are afraid of drone damage.
The price of drone education for small flying hands education is very suitable for practice. All parts are strictly controlled, professional and safe. The price of a basic drone is about 200 yuan. In the words of Juni, it is "not afraid of bumps, bold test flight."
So far, nearly 500 schools in China have used the teaching materials of small flying hand drones. More and more primary and secondary schools have actively responded to the national innovation education policy, and this number continues to rise.
However, the ensuing problem is that the faculty of Xiaofei's education is limited. Even if some schools use the materials of Xiaofei's hand, it is difficult for teachers to teach from a professional perspective. Xiaofeishou Education thinks of a solution, that is, Xiaofei has to do free teacher-focused training. At present, many games have been launched throughout the country. In this way, teachers in the school can teach students how to assemble and operate drones to solve students' problems anytime, anywhere.
Xiaofei's education adopts the franchise mode. So far, the teacher training of Xiaofei's educational services has covered 18 provinces across the country. From urban to rural areas, primary and secondary school students in all places have the opportunity to personally experience science and education.
02, monopoly youth drone competition
The International Air Robot Competition was founded in 1991. The competition has been going through 27 years and completed six generations of missions. In 2014, the seventh generation of competitions was opened. By 2018, the competition is the fifth year of the seventh-generation competition. It can be seen that the difficulty of international competition is very large, even if the participants are adults from colleges and universities.
In order to enable more students interested in aviation knowledge and drone flight platform to participate in it, the International Air Robot Competition Organizing Committee has specially set up a youth play-off. The additional youth play-offs are solely responsible for Xiaofei’s education. In addition, Xiaofeishou Education also assisted local authorities in designing and organizing regional and professional primary drone regional competitions. Including the international competition, all the participants of the juvenile drone competition are from the students of the small flying hands education all over the country. Under this phenomenon, Xiaofeishou Education decided to introduce a grading system in the future to encourage primary and secondary school students to continue on the road of learning drones.
03, not to profit from the small flying hand education
In 2016, Xiaofeishou Education sent a free of charge of 660,000 yuan to the primary and secondary schools across the country, and every year after that, it was free. Founder Zhu Ni said that as long as the application for registration, Xiaofei is free to send out, and even the postage is paid by Xiaofeishou Education. During this year's World Cup, the small flying hands are still making a quiz, and the initiative is to allow the winners to specify a free drone for primary and secondary school students.
Xiaofeishou Education can be said to have made the cause a public good. Since the company was founded two years ago, Zhu Ni has sent out numerous sets of teaching aids for drones free of charge. From town to rural areas, she has used her own strength to infiltrate science and education into all parts of the country. Even poor rural students have the opportunity to reach out. Man-machine.
Primary and secondary school students are the rising sun and the hope of the future of the country. They should lay a solid foundation in the era of rapid development of science and technology. Technology creates things that are not just adults.
With the influence of Xiaofeishou education in the youth UAV education circle, it is impossible to guess that they have never focused on promotion. "We don't even have a sale." Zhu Ni laughed and said that even without promotion, the reputation of Xiaofei's education has long been widely known. It can be seen that Xiaofei's education is very stable in the field of juvenile drone education.
04, discover the child's creativity
Xiaofeishou Education provides aviation technology research travel services. Beginning in July, the aviation technology research summer camp of Xiaofeishou Education is in hot recruitment. These enrolled students come from all over China, and the shuttle service is provided by Xiaofeishou Education to ensure the safety of the children throughout the journey, so that parents who do not have time to accompany their children can be more assured.
As founder Zhu Ni said, the focus of the Flying Flyer Education UAV program is not on the UAV hardware. In addition to the basic assembly and control capabilities, it is also the student's creative design ability, teamwork ability and innovation sharing ability. to cultivate.
Combining artificial intelligence with robot education can effectively cultivate the innovative ability of primary and secondary school students. “Youth is wisdom, the country is strong, and the young is strong.” Let the primary and secondary school students get in touch with and learn drones from an early age, inspire children’s innovative spirit and desire to explore, and exercise their hands-on ability and teamwork ability. In the future, unlimited possibilities!
About drones: drones, that is, unmanned aircraft. Generally referred to as unmanned aerial vehicles, such as various types of drone pilot aircraft, unmanned helicopters, unmanned multi-rotor aircraft (multi-rotor / multi-axis aircraft), unmanned multi-rotor due to the nature of the aircraft model in recent years With the popularity of aircraft (multi-rotor/multi-axis aircraft), people are now accustomed to using drones to refer to unmanned aircraft of this type of aircraft model. In modern society, information technology has developed at a high speed, and drone technology has undergone tremendous changes. As an emerging technology, drones belong to the high-tech frontier technology industry. With the development of informatization and the advancement of society, drones will surely become an important position for cultivating China's future innovative talents.
