Students from Shanghai University (SHU) had fun in the metropolis on March 26, delving into China's modern technology and ancient civilization.

Dozens of Chinese and overseas students from Pakistan, South Korea, Thailand, Sri Lanka, Turkey and Nepal participated. They began their day at Shanghai Science and Technology Museum, where they explored the Earth "in-depth", gained insights into China's ancient inventions and creations, and were inspired by the country's sophisticated space technology, especially the Shenzhou spacecraft series and the Tiangong space labs.

The students from Pakistan showed a great deal of interest in China's scientific and technological development, particularly its advanced achievements and practical applications in genetic science.

Their next stop was the Shanghai Museum, where the students immersed themselves in a collection of precious relics, including bronzes, ceramics, paintings and calligraphy.

The Thai students were pleasantly impressed by China's folk costumes, "The ones from the Dai ethnic group are so much like ours," one student said.

On their way back to school, the students shared feelings about the inspiration they felt from the trip, not only marveling at China's ever-changing development, but also excited about their stronger connection with Chinese partners.
