(Day 1) Individual Reflection for Pre-camp and Plenary Session
Hello there earthlings. Today i have gone through the first day of the NTU Flagship Programme! I missed out a few sessions in the morning due to math olympiad but i'll start my reflections from the first item i attended, which was the second Plenary session. I got to say, the Plenary session really did surprise me, i thought it would be boring but it turned out to be really really interesting! The Professer on stage talked about using IT for animation! As a guy who really enjoys watching anime and animations, i was curious about how these people created these kind of wonderful films! The professor taught us about the tools they used and that they have to draw out every single frame of the animation. That must be really tiring, gosh! I learned so much about animation from the professor and is really grateful to him for telling us about it, animation is actually a job i wanted to take on in the future :) Next was the third Plenary session, A caucasian professor came up on stage and i found him really funny, always making the students laugh! He has a nice accent too!:D He talked about nanotechnology. At the beginning of the session , i was not sure what nanotechnology actually was but he explained it clearly and patiently to us, i finally understood what it was. Nanotechnology is the branch of technology that deals with dimensions and tolerances of less than 100 nanometers, esp. the manipulation of individual atoms and molecules.
He showed us images and videos about what nano technology was and how it was used in our daily lives. He even told us people used nanotechnology to carve their names on they're hair hahah! Overall, the day so far has been wonderful and i thank SST and NTU for giving me such a wonderful opportunity to learn in NTU :)
