On May 24, the 12th Annual China Satellite Navigation Conference "Academicians to campus" and the Gan Po BeiDou Science Seminar were held in Nanchang, co-organized by the Academic Exchange Center of China Satellite Navigation Office, Nanchang Association for Science and Technology, and Nanchang Education Bureau.
This event is a series of science popularization activities of the 12th annual China Satellite Navigation Conference. Three experts, professor Guo Jingjun, senior advisor of the scientific committee of the conference, researcher Cao Chong and associate professor Zhang Li of Jiangxi Normal University, were invited to give lectures on BeiDou science popularization to students in four schools, namely Yuzhang Normal University, Nanchang Zhanqian Road School Education Group, Yuquan Island Campus of Experimental Primary School Affiliated to Nanchang Normal University and Donghu Primary School in Nanchang City.
Combined with rich case studies, the lectures focused on the spirit of spaceflight, the spirit of BeiDou in the new era, the basic principles, and development history of the BeiDou satellite navigation system, and the wide application of BeiDou navigation in multiple fields. The academicians and experts also conducted on-site interactive exchanges with the students. Nearly 1,000 students listened to the report on the day, and the webcast was also widely disseminated to the public, with more than 20,000 people watching the live broadcast. At the same time, BeiDou science exhibitions were held in each school.
The event not only enabled the students to understand and learn about the BeiDou system and the scientific knowledge in the field of navigation, but also greatly stimulated their curiosity about space and BeiDou. It was also of great significance in enhancing their national pride, cultivating their patriotic enthusiasm, and establishing ambitious ideals.
