Integrated Human Practices
As a Beginner, Be a Learner.
As the first time to participate in iGEM, we lack experience. In order to be more effective in preparing for the competition, we actively contacted with other excellent team, visited their school to ask how to prepare for iGEM. These teams include: Peking, HZAU-China, HUST-China, FAFU-CHINA, WHU-China (2015).
We took photos with Peking team for memorial after the visit.
In addition, we also participated in the 2016CCiC (Central China iGEM Consortium), and exchanged ideas with the participants of the 30 other teams, receiving a lot of valuable experience and advice.
All the participants took a group photo after the closing ceremony
In view of the overall design and experimental design of the project, we contacted with Jiang Huifeng, a researcher of Tianjin Institute of Industrial Biotechnology of Chinese Academy of Sciences, and Kang Peng, a Proffessor of Technical Institute of Physics and Chemistry CAS. And we went to the laboratory to study the related mature theories and experimental techniques of Blue Leaf.
As a Beginner, Be a Communicator.
Because it is the first time for us to participate in this competition, the students around and teachers from other schools of our university do not know much about synthetic biology and iGEM. In order to promote iGEM and synthetic biology, we conducted three preach activities. On the one hand, it attracted students from other schools look down upon biology. On the one hand, it also letted the teachers and students around us know that we are participating in a very meaningful competition.
At present, the high advancement of the Internet makes information dissemination and exchange become fast and convenient. In recent years, the rise of the network video broadcast, makes three-dimensional exchange become vivid, more time-sensitive. This year iGEM also called on each iGEMor to "Be Social". As the sponsor and the main planner, we jointly organized "Talk with LanZhou, Talk about iGEM" online live sharing activities with LanZhou iGEM team. We used network live platform which is very popular and mature at present, beyond the limitations of traditional lectures. In the live, conversation was taken place between LanZhou iGEM team members and on-site audience, to introduce their entries. LanZhou iGEM team members answered the questions asked by the audience. In just one hour, we got 1100+ hits, which has made a very good publicity display effect. We hope to show our work and discuss with classmates, friends and family about our project in time in a special way.
In just one hour, we got 1100+ hits, 3,6000+upvote.
