"Supported by the Shenzhen Education Bureau, Shenzhen No.2 Experimental School has carried out a series of Students’ Astronomy Mini Exploratory Research, such as “how high is the lunar crater” ,”solar prominence and solar cycle” etc.
Mini exploratory research refers to the interdisciplinary research-based learning project carried out by students in the subject field or the real life situation. Students try to solve problems through investigation, experiment, observation, analysis, discussion and practice.
Unlike professional research, it does not focus on putting forward new theories, but guides and encourages students to conduct in-depth learning in the way of scientific research, Stimulate their exploration interest ,enhance their team cooperation ability and innovation consciousness."
