SHANGHAI, Nov. 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The 2019 Maker Carnival, sponsored by DFRobot, opened at Jiangwan Stadium, Shanghai, on Friday, October 18th. With over 300 creators, 30 themed forums, and more than 1,000 projects, two classic international events also landed on the this year's carnival site.

Initiated in 2012, the annual event gathers creative makers from all over the world to display cutting-edge technology, high-tech robotic products and new ideas in art, design, science and technology. As China's largest maker party, it is also a platform to cultivate more innovative young people in China.

STEM experts from China, the Netherlands and Japan attended the International Future Course Design Forum 2019 during the event.

They shared their experience in curriculum design and development. New achievements and trends in artificial intelligence were also discussed.

The three day event was held Oct 18-20. Originally started in Bangkok, the form of "Maker Parade" was introduced by the Japanese maker SUZUKI-San front Skeleton guy, to Tokyo, and this time Shanghai was a good demonstration and fun for visitors.

In the drone zone, X-FLY kicked off the 2019 gt-X endurance race, making the site the world's first stop for the GT-X endurance race. Since the official cooperation with Maker Carnival in 2016, X-FLY has held three consecutive drone racing competitions, attracting the attention and participation of more than 3000 domestic and foreign makers and more than 500 start-up teams, and staged the "Air F1" innovative technology competition. With a speed of nearly 200 kilometers per hour in Jiangwan Stadium in the soaring "Air F1" - X-Fly drone race, the GT-X endurance race was more suitable for spectators to watch the "uninterrupted flight" race system, as X-FLY's unique "entry" mechanism increased the tactical endurance race. At the same time, more emphasis was placed on team work.

In the LRFT exhibition area, the ROBOT Fighting Time, hosted by the LBT Robotic Combat Team Alliance, also earned the attention of the event. Based on their rich experience in domestic and international competitions, the six post-1990 members independently formulated new evaluation rules and launched the 1.36kg Beetle-class robot fighting competition.

This year's Maker Carnival also featured a series of projects related to scientific experiments, which aroused curiosity and cognitive desire for science through hands-on experience.
