University students from Beijing and Taiwan took part in a weeklong camp titled Intelligence Creates the Future, which was launched at the University of Science and Technology Beijing on June 29.

In the ceremony hall, intelligent cars designed by students of the Beijing university are displayed during the weeklong camp.

"These cars have won awards in intelligent car races home and abroad. In the following days, visitors from Taiwan will learn how to control the cars by an app designed by us," says Yu Fang, a student majoring in automation in Beijing. "The operation is simple and easy, so students of different backgrounds can enjoy it."

The annual summer camp has been hosted by the Beijing university since 2004. This year's event has drawn students and teachers from Taiwan universities, such as Taipei University of Technology and Taiwan University of Science and Technology.

Aiming at enhancing hands-on ability and cultivating the team spirit of the youngsters, this year's camp includes a series of creative activities based on intelligent cars — an emerging high-tech products both in the country and globally.

"We hope that the activity will spark students' interests in intelligent cars and tap their potential, and Taiwan participants could make themselves at home here," says Zhang Xinxin, the president of University of Science and Technology Beijing, adding in a speech that the camp can serve as a bond academically and emotionally between universities in Taiwan and the mainland.

Yu Bin, deputy director of the Office for Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan Affairs in the Ministry of Education, points out that the young generation plays an essential role in improving the cross-Straits relationship and the future of China at large.

Ma Xiaokang, a professor from Taiwan University, introduced the development of new energy technology in Taiwan, highlighting that advancing innovative energy technology will pave the way to a green economy.
