Concert by 文琴交响乐团

这周我们上了第一节折纸机器人的课。课上我们学习了一些机械工程的基础知识,原来生活中一些很常见的东西都是有机械原理在里面的。老师还给我们展示了一些折纸机器人的模型,这些可折叠的小东西在科学,医学和建筑上都有很广泛的应用。课后的作业是做一个可动的折纸,听起来简单,但是做起来可不容易。我发现,做个机器人不难,折纸也不难,但这两个元素放在一起,便无从下手了。

This week we had our first lesson on origami robots. During the lesson, we learnt some basic knowledge and applications of mechanical engineering. The professor showed us some prototypes of origami robots. We were impressed by the wide ranges of applications of those tiny robots in engineering, medical industry as well as architecture. The homework was to build a movable origami using cardboards or paper. We realised that it is not hard to make an origami, neither a robot, but when you combine the two together, we were completely lost.

这个星期也是浙江大学的校庆周,5月21日是浙大建校120周年的纪念日。为了庆祝建校120周年,很多社团都举办了免费的演出。我有幸抢到了文琴交响乐团的音乐会门票,欣赏了一场高水准的交响乐演出。中场的时候,很多即将毕业的学姐学长上台讲话,谈了谈自己在乐团四年多来的感受。印象最深的是个在浙大读了10年念书,也在乐团呆了10年的,即将博士毕业的学长。

21st May is the 120th anniversary of Zhejiang University. There were many interesting activities and performances around the school. I went for a concert by Wen Qin Philharmonic Orchestra on Friday. I really enjoyed the music they played! During the intermission, some of the graduating students shared their memories in the orchestra. One of the seniors has been stayed for 10 years.

周六晚上,玉泉校区举办了露天的音乐会。我们一行人前往玉泉校区毛主席像前的草坪上也想凑一凑热闹。晚上7点开始的演出早早就挤满了人,我们去的稍微晚了些便只能在舞台后方看演出了。演出十分精彩,大部分都是歌曲,让我回想起了SUTD看过的几次bands的演出。看来无论是中国还是新加坡,大学生们都对歌曲有着执着的爱。

There was a concert at Yu Quan campus on Saturday. It was very crowded and we came a bit late, so we could only find a place near the backstage.

星期日——5月21日,浙大120周年纪念日。学校里面十分热闹,大小街道人流攒动。很多校友都回到母校共同庆祝这特别的一天,有已满头白发的老人,也有领着孩子的夫妻。SUTD建校时间较短,还没有一个很成熟的校园文化,尤其是校友这方面。我相信在不久的将来,我们也会像浙大一样,拥有一批杰出的校友。晚上学生会在学校操场上举办了欢乐校庆夜的演出。印象最深的是武术表演和现代舞。武术亦柔亦刚,令人拍案叫绝。现代舞的舞者们用优美的舞步展现了浙大120年来的风风雨雨,让观者感同身受。

Sunday was ZJU’s 120th birthday. The school was very crowded because many alumni went back to celebrate this special day. SUTD is a rather young school so that we don’t really have this kind of celebration. But I do believe that such cultures will slowly build up in SUTD. There was also a performance set up by the student union in ZJU in the evening.

校庆周让我更加深入的了解了浙大的文化。这也让我开始畅想,100年后,SUTD又会是怎样的景象。

It was such a fruitful week! I found myself a bit more ‘local’ after taking part in all those anniversary events. I am really excited for the next week to come:)
