1. The cultivation of students’ innovative ability as the mission, and actively advocate Design Thinking to stimulate the creativity of children, Peng Ruiwen coauthored with Chen Chaohua on a book and developed courses for 5-8 years old, and coauthored with Zhao Di for a book in Earth Sciences as a series of books edited by the Lab for Lifelong Learning, Tsinghua University to be published by the Tsinghua University Press.

2. Peng Ruiwen wa sone of the chief reviewers of Computational Thinking and Programming, which will be published by Tsinghua University Press as a series of books on improving scientific education ability. This book can be used as a popularscience education textbook for teenagers on computational thinking and programming, and also for the training of science and technology teachers in primary and secondary schools.

3. Peng Ruiwen was one of the editors of “Design Thinking and Innovative Education”. As one of the series of teaching materials for teachers’ education of”entrepreneurship and innovation” in normal universities, it can be used as relevant teaching materials and reference books for model students, as well as training materials for primary and secondary school teachers.

4. Peng Ruiwen was one of the editors of Our Little Friends: Dogs, a picture book that guides children to practice “Raising dogs in a civilized way and being a responsible little owner”. It was published by the China Labor and Social Security Publishing House in May 2019.
