In recent years, an increasing number of rural middle schools in Sanmenxia city, central China’s Henan Province, have built their own science and technology museums in order to enable students to develop an interest in science and technology.
Recently, at the science and technology museum of a middle school located in Jiaokou township, Hubin district, Sanmenxia city, middle school and primary school students from rural areas experienced the power and wonder of science and technology.
The students had a great time at the museum watching simulated thunder and lightning effects and maglev Earth modeling, as well as operating robotic devices.
“I was very interested in the simulated thunder and lightning effects, which were really spectacular,” said a student named Peng Jiayi, an eight-grader from Jiaokou Middle School.
“Since the science and technology museum was built at the end of the last year, we’ve held various popularization activities, which saw the participation of a large number of middle school and primary school students. In the future, we’ll carry out more experiments and invite more students into the world of science and technology,” said Niu Xiaohua, curator of the science and technology museum.
