A Talk between HZAU Scientists and Kids

“I like puppies, but my parents believe that puppies carry viruses and parasites that cause infections in humans. So how can I prevent those diseases?” “What exactly is zoonosis?” “I love science a lot, what can I do now?”…Did you have these puzzles when you were young?

Recently, HZAU’s professors, Chen Huanchun and Jin Meilin, members of Chinese Academy of Engineering had a science talk with eight pupils (Cao Juqian, Xu Yumo, Hu Jiayue, Zhang Yichu, Zhang Zimeng, Han Yihao, Liu Yuyu, and Zou Liheng) from the Primary School Affiliated to HZAU. These students were all interested in animal science, and this event provided an opportunity for them to interact with scientists.

From animal science to zoonosis and human life, Prof. Chen and Jin answered the kids’ questions patiently and had an in-depth discussion with them. which would be helpful to inspire the youth to think and act like scientists.

At the end, the two pupils, Hu and Han presented portrait paintings they had made to Prof. Chen and Jin. In return, they gave the popular science book Future Genius to the eight students as gifts. Chen and Jin also signed the book and wrote some encouraging words.
