“草长莺飞二月天，拂堤杨柳醉春烟。”2019年 3月 21日下午，趁着美好春光，无锡外国语学校小学国际课程中心一年级的孩子们带着愉悦的心情和对知识的向往来到无锡华莱坞数字电影产业园，他们进行了首次PYP外出探究活动。
"The grass warbler flies in February, and the willows are drunk in spring." On the afternoon of March 21, 2019, in the beautiful spring, the first-year teachers and students of the International Curriculum Center of Wuxi Foreign Language School came to the Wallywood Digital Film Industry Park in Wuxi with joy and longing for knowledge. They conducted their first PYP outing and exploring activities.
Under the guidance of the staff, the students first came to the Digital Film Science and Technology Museum took the "film time train" and listened to the staff about the development of the world and Chinese films. After a frame of static images, it is the children's eyes for knowledge. Subsequently, the students watched the shooting models of "2012" and "Titanic" and movie special effects uncovering videos, and learned about the world's most advanced film shooting and production technology. With the patience of the instructor, the students were very enthusiastic.
Then, the first grade students experienced a digital film special effects technology. They "traverse" to classic movie scenes, watching themselves on the screen sometimes running in the primeval forest on dinosaurs, sometimes floating on cruise ships in the Atlantic Ocean, everybody was excited.
探究学习的第二站是国内首个 3D打印名人明星蜡像馆——品啦明星馆。同学们在了解什么是 3D打印技术的同时，争相与自己喜欢的蜡像合影留念。最后，同学们走进了影视拍摄区，实地感受影视剧中的造景布局。金碧辉煌的“皇宫宝殿”，年代感十足的“民国街”，具有不同时代特色的建筑、陈设等给同学们带来了强烈的视觉和文化冲击。
The second stop of inquiry learning is Pinla Star Hall, the first 3D printing celebrity wax museum in China. When they understood what 3D printing technology was, they competed to take pictures with their favorite wax figures. Finally, the students went into the film and television shooting area to feel the scenery layout in the film and television play. The magnificent "palace" and the "Republic Street" with a full sense of age, the buildings and furnishings with different characteristics of the times had brought students a strong visual and cultural impact.
At the end of the activity, the students all felt that they had learned something and benefited a lot. Everyone has a more intuitive and vivid understanding of the application of static and dynamic images in different media. Especially, it is important to have a profound understanding of the central idea of the inquiry unit, "image conveying ideas and information".
