The event was hosted by Zhu Xinlei, counselor of Haide College, with active participation of the students.

Professor Wang began by sharing the courageous contributions and outstanding achievements of researchers and experts of OUC in the construction of the maritime power. She recounted the educational journeys, research stories, and remarkable accomplishments of four academicians-- Guan Huashi, Mai Kangsen, Bao Zhenmin and Song Weibo, to convey their spirit of dedication and unwavering commitment to the country to students.


Next, Wang introduced her personal research on marine planktonic virus, providing a scientific overview of the crucial role virus plays in material and energy flow, as well as biodiversity in the ocean. She showcased her research team's global layout in virus studies, spanning seven continents and four oceans. Drawing inspiration from her own quest, Wang encouraged students to endure solitude and hardship in scientific research, emphasizing that the fragrance of plum blossoms comes from the bitterness of the cold.

Wang Min then delved into the current situation of Antarctic scientific research, sharing her experiences as a member of the 31st and 36th Antarctic expedition teams, including the maiden voyage of Snow Dragon 2 to Antarctica.

In conclusion, Wang Min motivated Haide students to broaden their international perspectives and rooted in patriotism. Students should strive to actively participate in global governance, demonstrate youth responsibility, integrate personal endeavors into the rejuvenation of the Chinese nation and the progress of human society, progress hand in hand with the motherland, and grow together with the times, thus embodying the mission and dedication of the OUC students through practical actions.
