Students of Soochow University’s School of Science showed their ingenious and professional works in a creative science competition on May 15th, 2019. Top prizes went to a math major Ying-Xian Jiang and four chemistry majors Peng-Yi Lin, Jia-Hui Yang, Tian-Lin Zhang and Guan-Han Chen.

Jiang won the first prize in the creative research group with a practical work of Conditional Generative Adversarial Networks under the guidance of Professor Hui-Wen Lin of the Department of Math. The four students from Department of Chemistry nabbed the first prize in the patented product development group with their detector for lethal toxins.

Meanwhile, in order to recognize students for their enthusiastic participation, the awards included not only the top three prizes but also four honorable mentions, five most popularity awards, five best poster awards, and 20 participation prizes and on-site prizes.

Dean of Research Development Zhi-Jie Wang pointed out that competition is necessary for the students in School of Science. Through participating in the competition and the instruction from the teachers, students can not only enhance their expertise but put what they have learned into practice. Any difficulty in the future will be easy to deal with and become what it takes to be an entrepreneur.

The event also invited Xing-Rong Chen, an alumnus from Department of Chemistry, to share his experience from the aspect of entrepreneurship. Chen considered it important to cultivating the habits of reading and visiting exhibitions. He brought up “three levels of people”; the top level is those who have leadership and work hard; the middle level is those who do not have leadership but work very hard; the bottom level is those who have only prejudice and just complain. “Be wary not to be the bottom one. Don’t blame others but introspect yourself with modesty. This is the only way to the right path of entrepreneurship,” Chen added.

Professor You-Yi Zhang of the Department of Physics encouraged students to face any new thing or challenge in order to adapt to the constantly changing environment. Zhang reminded students that a person who enjoys reading but does not love to change would not be qualified as an entrepreneur.
