China Children and Teenagers' Fund (CCTF) organized the "Connecting Children with Science" charity activity in Beijing on December 15.

The activity was part of the Future Park Project, which is backed by China's largest diary producer, Inner Mongolia Yili Industrial Group Co.

Over the past two years, CCTF and Yili have co-organized many science popularization activities, donated science books to over 100,000 teachers and students, and held events at over 100 impoverished schools nationwide.

"To publicize science among teenagers, we have organized activities both online and offline through the Future Park," said Zhu Xisheng, secretary-general of CCTF. "We hope that youngsters can benefit from the activities and contribute to the Chinese dream of national rejuvenation."

On behalf of Yili, Zhang Yipeng, vice president of the company, donated 2 million yuan and 200 books to the activity.

"As a company, we have always kept product quality and social responsibility in mind," said Zhang. "We hope more companies to help promote the development of China's tech innovation and education industry for youth."

As part of the initiative, organizers established a platform for teenagers from different backgrounds to share their thoughts on science via videos.

"The platform is meaningful," said Zhang Jun, a middle school teacher. "It makes nature science education lay more emphasis on practice rather than theory."

In the future, organizers will make full use of internationally advanced science and technology concepts, and build a platform to promote exchange between Chinese and overseas students, according to a spokesperson.
