To celebrate the 70th anniversary of the establishment of Changchun Institute of Optics, Fine Mechanics and Physics (CIOMP), carry forward the spirit of CIOMP and showcase its charm, the International Cooperation Office launched a one-year "My Story with CIOMP" English essay solicitation activity in 2022 to allow people who have connections with the institute to share their own CIOMP stories.
Previously, the English essay solicitation activity has been successfully held for three times. The purpose of the activity is to stimulate the English learning atmosphere of the whole institute, encourage faculty and staff as well as students to apply English in their everyday work and study, increase foreign exchanges, and greatly enrich the cultural life of the institute. At the same time, we will continue to work hard to promote the international development of CIOMP.
We received 24 essays in total. Some of them are from in-service employees from the Space Optics Department, the Aeronautical Imaging and Measurement Technology Research Department, the Human Resources Department, etc. Essays were also submitted by foreign researchers from the GPL Photonics Laboratory and the Green Photonics Research Center, colleagues from the Changguang Group, master's and doctoral students, former alumni living abroad, and children of employees. The participants also cover a wide age range, with the youngest being only 13 years old and the oldest at 86.
The essays, published in a special column of CIOMP's English website, contain moving stories of humor and sincerity about the writers' study, work and growth in the Institute. A collection of the essays will also be published in paper form and distributed to all participants. Meanwhile, we have also published stories of the participants on the WeChat official account of CIOMP to expand the influence of this special activity.
The essay solicitation activity has successfully stimulated CIOMP people's enthusiasm for English communication, showcased their deep feelings for CIOMP, and is indeed a good birthday gift to mark the 70th anniversary of CIOMP.
