Ancient China-Digging Into the Past

Ancient China-Digging into the Past

Discover contributions from China that changed our world! 

In this exciting hands-on program, Brain Trek will introduce your class to the world of Chinese archaeology.

Virginia SOLs:  Social Studies 2.1

The students will “read” an antique Chinese robe as an artifact, demonstrate their map skills, draw Chinese characters, and meet Qin Shi Huang Di, the First Emperor of China. 

They will discuss how archaeologists explore the wonders of Ancient China including the Great Wall using a multi-media presentation. 

Then the exploration begins!

Working in small groups, the students will become archaeologists and excavate Chinese inventions, art works, and more. Students will record and interpret what they find.

It’s fun for everyone!  An experience to remember


Solutions to meet industry’s challenges

Examples of how Industry 4.0 benefits manufacturers can easily be found in a wide range of industries, says Umberto Perez, head of Industry 4.0, at GF Machining Solutions.

“Our major strategical development policy focuses on industrial segments that share the challenges of constantly maintaining highest productivity, quality, and accuracy in their manufacturing processes. All the while it contributes for the cost-efficiency and increases the overall agility and flexibility of any production!. At the same time, we must provide solutions for specific requirements, like the aerospace and medical industries’ need for surface integrity and process traceability,” Perez explains. “Our Industry 4.0 approach is to envision intelligent manufacturing solutions that will target fully predictable & programmable processes, which could be readily tuned to the best performance. A big part of our studies here within specific but fast-changing requirements faced by complex manufacturing businesses”.

Making those solutions possible is digitization, the conversion of information into a digital format that can be understood by computer systems. Digitization establishes the foundation for cyber-physical systems.
