I have TA'ed and lectured several courses at MIT (both undergraduate and graduate level), including: 2.016 (U), 1.015/2.017 (U), 6. A01 (U), 2.22 (G), 2.154 (G).

But the most exciting classes I helped to establish and have taught are Fishbot (as part of 6.A01) and Design Electro-mechanic Robotic System (1.015/2.017), two classes emphasizing both theory and hands-on.


These two classes were taught with Dr. Thomas Consi at Ocean Engineering Education Innovation Lab at MIT Sea Grant.


After volunteering over 3 years at MIT Edgerton Center for STEM education outreach. At 2017, together with Dr. Gurvan Jodin and Dr. Ang Li, we proposed a new STEM studying and teaching concept of "STEM 3.0". It is featured with a learning style of project-and-task-based and knowledge-using role play. (The accepted abstract for IEEE EDUCON 2020 can be downloaded here.)

From 2017, "STEM 3.0" has been experimentally implemented in Shanghai with 2 newly established STEM education center and in different middle/high schools, as well as in the department of Ocean Engineering at SJTU.
