August 31, 2018

An exhibition featuring the achievements of Xi’an Jiaotong-Liverpool University staff and students is now on.

The exhibition, ‘Staff and Students Achievements in the Eyes of the Media’, is the first comprehensive exhibition for the XJTLU Museum and aims to inspire XJTLUers to keep making progress in future explorations and development.

With the theme of the exhibition the word ‘NEXT’, the Museum hopes to use the word to encourage visitors to think about future.

The exhibition is designed to provoke questions and discussions, such as “What am I going to do next?”, “What will the future hold for us?” and “How will XJTLU develop in the next decade?”

An interactive exhibition, visitors are encouraged to write their wishes and blessings for the future development of XJTLU on sticky notes.

There are three exhibition spaces that cover teaching and learning achievements of staff and students in six areas, including competition awards, teaching achievements, research achievements, research papers, publications, and public welfare projects.

The content of the exhibition explores dozens of subjects such as biology, urban planning, architecture, industrial design, film and television arts, chemistry, and electric and electronic engineering.

As well as display boards and posters, projectors and digital TVs are also used to illustrate the achievements through a variety of visual ways.

Visitors also have the opportunity to experience robot models selected from students’ work, which allows visitors to control a robot through programming in an iPad.

In the east of the exhibition room, a scene called ‘Look up at the Starry Sky’ has been prepared specifically for the visitors.

It is a scene with numerous stars created by projection technology, which allows people to “look up at the starry sky” and to look forward to the future.

The exhibition is located in Room 155 in the Central Building and will run until October 25.
