International collaborative learning PM2.5 Sun Yat-sen University promotes Taiwan and American students to recognize aerosol

This year, the most severe and strongest overseas sandstorm hit Taiwan, and the empty products in the western half of the country have now reached the "Orange Police" or even "Red Harm" rating. In order to allow more young students to understand the close relationship between PM2.5 fine aerosol

and the atmosphere, air pollution and climate change, Aerosol Science Research Center of National Sun Yat-sen University organized the "Aerosol International Co-Learning Day" event with the theme of "Aerosol, With the theme of "Climate Change and Innovation", nearly a hundred college students and 9th grade students from Kaohsiung American School were invited to establish a basic understanding of aerosols, PM2.5 and their relevance to climate change through a series of lectures and visits to the laboratory. And then cultivate the awareness of environmental protection.

This activity takes "International Co-learning" as the starting point to design aerosol science curriculum activities with inquiries, implementations, and creativity, and opportunities to experience full English learning, so that learners from different countries, cultural backgrounds and learning stages can Learn and understand professional knowledge about aerosol science and environmental protection. Associate Professor Chia C. Wang, the Director of the Aerosol Science Research Center at National Sun Yat-sen University,

, pointed out that in recent years, various disasters caused by global climate change and the resulting resource shortages, food production and other problems have been constantly happening all over the world, seriously threatening the global economy. Ecological environment and public life safety and health. These natural disasters, which seem to be caused by extreme weather, are closely related to the air pollution caused by man-made activities and the suspended particulates of PM2.5.
The " Aerosol International Co-Learning Day " event was conducted in English and three wonderful speeches were arranged, including the center director Chia C. Wang on "Aerosol, Atmosphere and Climate Change", and Professor Liu Lilian of the Department of Marine Sciences on "Air Pollution Particles in the Ocean" "Research on Bioaccumulation" and Qiu Zhengchao, Assistant Professor of the Department of Chemistry, talked about "the chemistry of hydrogen economy" focusing on alternative energy sources. From a cross-domain perspective, introduce the impact of suspended particles in air pollution on the climate and possible solutions, lead international students to see the scientific knowledge of aerosol in life, and visit a number of unique aerosol experimental facilities in the country, Playing air quality management board games and listening to lectures will enable students to have a more comprehensive understanding of scientific research and the field of aerosol, stimulate learning motivation and interest, and lead the future to invest in the field of aerosol scientific research.

An air pollution-themed board game was also prepared on site for students to experience. Under Paichi-Pat Shein, the leader of the Environmental Education Promotion Team of the Aerosol Science Research Center and the professor of the Institute of Education, international students played the board game "Guardian Gaia: Defending the Air Products". In "Education and Fun", real life experience and learning are connected through education, so that learners realize the hazards of air pollution to human health and the surrounding environment, so as to realize and build awareness of environmental protection and scientific and humanistic quality .

Afternoon activities are organized in teams to various laboratories, including: the country's first real-time PM2.5 automatic monitoring facility closest to the seaport, Wang Jiaxuan Director's Aerosol and Biomedicine Science Laboratory, The Aerosol Laser Laser Photometry Telemetry Facility developed by Assistant Professor Zhang Yuanbin of the Department of Chemistry and the Aerosol Raman Photoplier Facility, the high-resolution infrared spectroscopic technology developed by Assistant Professor Zhong Zhaoyu of the Department of Chemistry, and the Organic Photoelectrient Laboratory developed by Zhang Mei of the Department of Photoelectrence. Through the professors personally explain the operation process of precision instruments and the skills of doing experiments, guide international students to understand the various fields of aerosol, and arrange campus ambassadors, personally visit Sun Yat-sen campus, understand the majors and characteristics of the various departments of the school, cross-domain learning and experience Sun Yat-sen day life.


In order to promote aerosol science and national environmental protection education, Aerosol Science Research Center of Sun Yat-Sen University has set up an international co-study group "PM2.5 Aerosol, Environment and Life" to build a global, cross-field, and aerosol science topic. The goal is an international co-learning environment oriented, and the four major co-learning objects are university end, K-12 learning stage, all walks of life, and international end. It is committed to developing innovative teaching and professional talent cultivation on aerosol-related topics, and improving the environmental protection of the whole people. awareness. Since its establishment, Aerosol Science Research Center has actively developed a number of cutting-edge and novel aerosol technologies, pioneered a number of special aerosol fields including aerosol biomedical science and PM2.5 preventive medicine, and has actively integrated with international exchanges to improve my country’s gas The international competitiveness and global influence of rubber research.

The spirit of the Aerosol International Co-Learning Day event coincides with a number of United Nations sustainable development indicators, including: Goal 4-Ensure that there are no classes, fair and high-quality education, Goal 13-Take emergency measures to respond to climate change And its impact, as well as Goal 17-Strengthen sustainable development implementation methods and activate sustainable development global partnerships. Under the structure of an international co-learning group, the school’s Aerosol Center currently has integrated credits for "PM2.5 Aerosol, Environment and Life", as well as "Aerosol, Atmosphere and Ocean", and "Aerosol Science and Environmental Education" in the school. Two micro-programs, gathering professors from the School of Science, School of Engineering, School of Marine Sciences, and School of Social Sciences of Sun Yat-Sen University, as well as experts, scholars and practitioners in professional fields related to aerosol science and environmental education at home and abroad. At the same time, it also cooperates with relevant government units and local industries. Close integration, welcome students from all departments who are interested in this topic to study. This event also conveyed an important core message: all life on the earth is actually a life community, closely related and interdependent. As a part of the global village, the future of the earth needs everyone to protect it together.
