For friends who have been familiar with Chaihuo & our community, you must have learned about CHIC or participated in CHIC meetup in the past years! Getting excited for the new episode of CHIC in 2018? Great news! We’ll be welcoming & hosting participants of CHIC 2018 at x.factory in the following 2 weeks!

熟悉柴火的朋友们可能都听说过CHIC项目或参与过CHIC分享会。如果你跟柴火菌一样对2018年的CHIC项目分享充满期待,那么好消息来啦!接下来两周时间,你们将会看到CHIC2018成员们在柴火造物中心忙碌的身影以及他们超赞的项目!

If you are not familiar with CHIC yet, here is a brief introduction. 

如果你还不了解CHIC的话,请看以下简介。

 

China Hardware Innovation Camp (CHIC) is an academic-industry cooperation program curated by EPFL (Ecole Polytechnique Federale De Lausanne). It offers a unique opportunity for students to experience the steps from idea to prototype of a product innovation in team-work, cross-culture environment, to solve real-world challenges. 

CHIC是中国瑞士硬件创新营的简称,是由瑞士洛桑联邦理工大学发起并举办的一个学术产业合作项目。它为学生们提供了一个独一无二的机会,让参与者了解并亲身体验从想法到原型的整个过程。CHIC展示了一种跨学科合作的方式,结合工程、设计和商业相关知识与经验,帮助学生们跨越学科界限,进行更深度的合作。

 

CHIC represents an interdisciplinary approach, combining knowledge and practical elements of engineering, design, and business. It therefore offers a great learning possibility for students keen to push the boundaries of their disciplinaries. CHIC features Swiss-China cooperation in many perspectives. It has been a model of academic-industry & cross-culture collaboration, triggering more institutes in countries including China, Singapore, US, and Canada to think about possible ways of creating similar programs for academic-industry cooperation.

CHIC项目也体现了瑞士与中国在不同方面的合作。自2015年至今,已经有76个学生参与了该项目,14个项目成功落地产出。CHIC项目也成为了产学研与跨文化合作的一个经典案例,让中国、新加坡、美国和加拿大等国家的多所高校思考建立类似的产学研合作项目。

    SAT考试 是申请美国大学的高中生不得不过的一关。关于SAT考试的话题也一直不断,时不时的取消成绩,延迟考试时间,甚至取消考试。虽说是有些大学不强制要求学生提交SAT成绩,但是想要提升自己的竞争力,大部分 美国大学申请 的学生都需要参加考试。 College Board 推出一个新的工具:Landscape Landscape 可以理解为一个背景环境信息盘,是 College Board 大约的两年前推出“环境背景信息中心”(Environmental Context Dashboard)的改版。 改版后的工具Landscape 考虑的因素与原来逆境分数的评估因素一致。Landscape 为学生在考试中的表现提供背景信息,囊括了学生的高中教学质量,学生成绩,学生的社区环境(例如高级课程设置和犯罪率)等等因素。

    DIY A Wireless Charger Into A Book How to make your own DIY book charger First, you should buy a small wireless charger. Look for one that is  small, slim, and doesn’t raise the temperature too much  while loading. Obviously, if the temperature goes too hot, it will burn the book. 2. Next, find an old book you are willing to cut up. Make sure the cover not too thick because the thicker the cover is, the weaker the signal will be. 3. Then, you should use a pencil to mark the shape and position of the charger on the page. 4. Next, use a sharp knife to cut a hole in the book pages where the charger will go. remove the paper 5. After that, you should also cut a hole for where the cable exits the book. 6. Then, hide the wireless charger inside the book and use tape to stick it. 7. Please note that, if you are using the same wireless charger I am using, you should get a QC 3.0 adapter or it won’t charge well. 8. This small wireless charger is too small to locate, especially when it is hidden under the book, so, you should find some thing to help to locate it. 9. If your phone do not have wireless charging feature, you should buy a receiver. After you finish, you will see the art just like here. Finally, It works. you can search on amazon :   Soopus-X wireless charger 15W   for this item i am using. video:
