Students of the Dayeh University firefighting program have returned home to promote science education
Dayeh University’s fire safety bachelor’s degree program actively promotes disaster prevention education, and designs a series of scientific and disaster prevention experience activities for different ages and activity venues.
Senior students Zhang Chengyao and Liu Xuanming returned to their hometown Penghu to hold a popular science breakthrough for Wen’ao elementary school children. During the activity, Zhang Routing, a senior student, assisted in the cultural resources disaster prevention drill in her hometown of Hsinchu County, and returned to her hometown to use what she had learned to contribute to the rooting of science and the sustainable vision.
Science to rescue environment
Zhou Zhongqi, an associate professor of Dayeh University’s bachelor’s degree in fire safety, said that the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization has designated July 2022 to June 2023 as the “International Year of Basic Sciences for Sustainable Development”, hoping to deploy science in tackling various environmental challenges.
“In times of great challenge, science can be a supporting force,” he said.
Dayeh University not only cultivates high-quality talents for the industry, but also actively implements the university’s social responsibilities. It uses the German mentorship system to lead students to learn from practice. Starting from the concept of SDGs, the sustainable development index of the United Nations, it is designed for different age groups and different activity fields.
Promoting science popularization
Zhou Zhongqi said that they will go out of the classroom to promote science popularization, so that children can learn about science through games. The school also cooperates with cultural bureaus or fire stations in different counties and cities to assist in research or drill activities.
The students, Zhang Chengyao and Liu Xuanming, who participated in the service are both from Penghu. Opportunities for scientific knowledge, sustainable spirit and hometown needs to expand learning. Zhang Routing, a senior student at Dayeh University, said that she chose the fire protection program at the beginning, and she was still ignorant, but the more she read, the more interested she became, and she decided to pursue a master’s program to improve her major.
Zhang Chengyao, a senior student at Dayeh University, pointed out that the laboratory hopes to improve the scientific literacy of children in remote villages and outlying islands through educational and entertaining activities.
Liu Xuanming, a senior student at Dayeh University, said that he was very happy to return to his hometown Penghu to serve. After repeated discussions and revisions, everyone turned the scientific knowledge in the books into a game, allowing children to experience it, understand the principles of science, and understand the relationship between science and life.
