WES Studio, the Makerspace Movement Arrives!丨WES Studio启航啦!

It’s always delightful to embrace something new, something creative in the new year… At Changsha WES Academy, we’re in the process of starting our very own Makerspace – the WES Studio!

新的一年,要敢于拥抱新事物,迎接新挑战……在长沙玮希国际学校,我们即将为您呈现一个属于WES师生的创意空间——WES Studio!


The rapid development of science and technology has brought about great changes to human life. With the open source hardware becoming mature and the popularization of new technology, more and more primary and secondary students set out to be Makers. The Maker Movement is sweeping the world!

随着科学技术的高速发展,互联网热潮的风起云涌,3D打印技术、Arduino等开源硬件平台日趋成熟,新能源新科技的运用普及化,越来越多热衷于将创意变为行动的中小学生踏上了“创客”之路,基于设计、分享、交流、制作、开源的“创客运动”正在席卷全球。


The main objectives of the WES Studio is to provide a venue for our older students (G5 and above) and of course, our staff, to be able to get in touch with cutting-edge science and technology. The Studio aims to allow students to develop their creativity using the facilities provided, which will be further enhanced by specific courses provided by the team. Also, this is an opportunity for our learners to become team leaders and help in managing the Studio. In the future, the lower grade students could make use of the Studio under their teachers’ supervision during class time too.

WES Studio的建立让学生和老师们可以通过“创客”活动和课程,接触最前沿的软件、电子、机械等科学技术。在这里,学生们可以运用所学知识将想法变为现实,在碰撞、分享的开放氛围中,他们的想象力将被激发,创新能力、思考能力与自主学习能力将得到锻炼。此外,学生们有机会成为团队领导并协助管理Studio。WES Studio主要面向五至十二年级学生开放。未来,低年级学生也可以在教师的带领下前往参观学习或上课。
