In order to inherit and carry forward the Chinese wine culture, strengthen the teamwork awareness and scientific literacy of biological students, College of Bioengineering held the 6th self-made glutinous rice wine competition. At noon on October 26, a pre-match presentation was held in the third-class classroom of Building nine of the Binhai Campus and the seminar was honored to invite Wenfa Cui and Xiaoguang Fan to attend the conference.

Rice wine is an important part of brewing wine. This activity not only leads the biology to relive the traditional culture, inherits the winemaking skills, but also helps the students to deepen their understanding of the biological field and appreciate the charm of microbial fermentation. College of Bioengineering sincerely hopes that our students will gain growth in practice and win great results on the field.
