Liang Yan's interactive learning aids help children and teachers, both inside and outside of the classroom, Li Yingxue reports.

At the age of 10, Liang Yan captured a snail. He still remembers how excited he was when he observed the snail's antennae up close for the first time.

Now, as the founder of Beauty of Science, an educational brand launched in 2015 by his company, Anhui Xinzhi Digital Media Information Technology, Liang is showing a video of a snail eating green vegetables under a microscope at an elementary school science lecture, hoping that an interest in science can be inspired in the young students by the little creature.

The company's aim is to provide science education materials for teenagers, as well as to also promote scientific culture by combining science with art, leading children to find the beauty of science.

"The students laugh each time I show this video-they are so happy that they can even clearly see the teeth of the snail," says Liang. "I hope I can pass on my passion for science to the kids, and encourage them to go outside more and to explore nature."

In 2017, the Ministry of Education launched a compulsory standard for elementary school science courses, stating that science teaching starts from the first grade.
