Images 4 and 5: Students in China using ebm-papst fans to make air-purifying units
Since 2015 ebm-papst China has sponsored to the Formula Student Electric team from Tongji Univeristy, DIAN Racing. Each year a team of first-year students design and manufacture an electric racing car to compete in Formula Student Electric China (FSE China) and at other events across Asia. In 2017 the team set the record for “Linear Acceleration” at the Student Formula in Japan and achieved first place in 7 categories in FSE China against 128 teams.
Partnering with the Kunming World Youth International School, ebm-papst China holds workshops for students and their families, educating them on air pollution, environmental protection, and engineering design. The workshop allows children and their parents to construct a working air-purifier, using ebm-papst fans, and demonstrates the importance of environmental protection through air quality.
