Reflection on Pro Roy Tasker’s Lecture
到了最后提问环节中，同学们都积极的提出了各种很有深度的问题，看的出 Tasker 教授对同学们的问题非常赞赏。而我也在稍作思考后，礼貌地向Tasker教授提出我的一些问题，而教授前后两次赞扬我的问题very excellent ,让我紧张之余又带了一点兴奋。最后离场时，面对记者的采访，我道出了对这次讲座的心声：一次很令人印象深刻，获益匪浅的讲座。
Attending the speech delivered by Doctor Taskers, a PhD in inorganic chemistry，I felt it was a horizon- broadening and thought- provoking experience, which hit me with high- tech teaching methods as well as distinguished education theories.
What attracts me, as well as other students, most is the Keypad, which is used to submit our answers. By clicking on the buttons, the answers of the students will be sent out and summed up in the computer. So every student has the chance to come up with their own opinion without worrying about losing their face when giving a wrong answer.
The lecture also gave us some theory about how we can learn more efficiently, which will upgrade our learning abilities.
We are so lucky that we can get to know what an Australian class is like, and we are content with such fresh but beneficial experience.
Reflection on Pro.Brad Hall’s Lecture
吴圣敏 高一2 Simplify our life
“It’s a good thing that computer technology exists and creates wonders” I thought, looking at a big screen full of top technological inventions in Professor Hall lecture. For example, solar car which can run more than
Many people may consider computer science and engineering as difficult subjects because of their high – tech content, but in fact engineers are always searching for ways to simplify complicated parts in machine making and turn them into something easy to operate. For example, designers of robots use color patterns to represent different matters in order to help robot soccer players identify goals and balls instead of “seeing” real objects through a camera. This form of thinking helps us solve problems and reduces troubles of complex conducts.
Nowadays, with the quick development of the society, increasing difficulties and heavy stresses are the main problems that people have to face in their life. So why not simplify our life, especially our process of thinking? Going through troubles may make us frustrated, angry even despaired. Then just take them easy and erase these negative moods little by little, and be calm. Only by easing our nerves and doing everything in a simple way can we build a world full of pleasure and relaxation in the bottom of our hearts, which keeps us hopeful, positive and energetic all day.
Be simple, be happy.
A lecture which was organized by GZ Australia Embassy and the International Department was hold today. The lecture was given by Professor Brad Hall. It is the first time that I have had a general understanding of high- tech engineering and science.
At the beginning, Professor Brad Hall made a brief introduction in engineering, including a lot of examples such as solar battery and smart mobile phone was presented to help us comprehend in depth how engineering works. In order to demonstrate how engineering was developed, Professor Hall showed us several videos of robot soccer competition in which we could easily find that those robots became more and more intel ligent. He also explained how students from his university solved the difficulties the y faced and made the things available
To be frank, it is indeed a bit difficult for us students to understand some professional terms mentioned in Professor Hall’s lecture, but we all had a good time attending a speech which offered much information that we were interested in. Actually, the speech also broadened my vision, and before that, never have I imagined that a university can be like a research and development department in a technology company,
Since the competition among graduates is fierce today, the widest knowledge range of engineering may sharpen our competitive edge. Professor Brad Hall offered a way for those who are interested in computer science and engineering to make their dream accessible. All in all, all of us did learn a lot from Professor Hall’s lecture.
Pro. Brad gave us an interesting lecture in which he showed us a magical world of computer science and engineering. I have learnt a lot from the speech as well as having some different perspectives about engineering now.
From his combination of profound theories and a lucid explanation, I knew that science is made up of a mechanical one and an informational one. In the information science, operating system is the major subjects. Pro. Brad introduced the application of OS in robots soccer matches, which is a big event in his college.
While Pro.Brad was giving the speech, I was considering the relationship between machine and information. According to Pro. Brad, information can simplify human’s life and color it. But in my opinion, information is a thing that is built up on the basis of machines, which directly influences our life. Therefore, technology and science should not only be developed along the track of information skills, but also raising the quality of machines.
Of course, science spirits are the same in developing both machines and information, being strong- minded, patient and careful. The example that Pro. Brad and his team spent a whole day testing the robots indeed inspired me as well as encouraged me to following the dream of being a great machine engineer.
As we know,
After hearing the lecture, I came to a conclusion that technology is based on education. In today’s society, the quality of a nation’s education is one of the biggest predictors for a nation’s success. On the other hand, education and investment in research and development are keys to the future in which technological innovations and break- through begin.
Nothing could express my excitement when I stepped into the Lecture Hall. It was a refreshed professor that was preparing his material for the speech on the stage, which made me too impatient to wait. The theme of the lecture is about science and engineering. He talked about a lot of theory, as well as showed us many short videos about the robots’ soccer competition to demonstrate his views on engineering technology. Although I was not quite interested in this area, I was still deeply affected by his word-painting. Not until the end of the speech did I come back to the reality and said goodbye to him. I think I have gained a lot from him, not only about the robots but also the spoken English. It will always be one of my special and unforgettable experiences.
