To celebrate the 10th Scientific Culture Season of School of Science, and to exhibit our scientific culture, School of Science solicited all the teachers and students in our university for the design schemes of School of Science mascot, aiming at visualizing the school spirit and refining scientific culture as well as communicating the advanced concepts of contemporary information society.
Mascot is of great artistic affinity and inspiration for a school, and it’s also very important in enhancing the cooperation and exchange among different schools. Thus School of Science mascot is expected to embody the characteristics, the scientific culture and spirits of School of Science.
The solicitation activity of the design schemes of School of Science Mascot lasted about a month ranging from March 20 to April 15. Finally ten design schemes were collected. They are either digitally designed or manually painted. But all of them can display the warm enthusiasm and high expectation from all the teachers and students of our school.
 (Name: Lili)
 
 
Other expressions and postures are as follows:
                             lovely                                     surprised                                      funny
 
The designing concept of the mascot is shown in the pictures below:
Hair or cap: The hair or cap of “Lili” is shaped like the tail of a carp or a doctorial cap, which represents as follows:
 First, “Lili” is homophonic with carp, which enables it easy to be remembered.
Second, “Lili” shaped like a fish is closely related to the logo of Beijing Jiaotong University(“Yuanyuan”) shaped like a drop of water, signifying that BJTU is to School of Science what water is to fish.
Third, both fish and water are symbols of prosperity and harvest in China’s traditional culture. Also people often a popular saying "carp leaping" to express hopes of a successful career and the realization of dreams. A fish is also a symbol of surplus in Chinese culture, another measure of a good year and a good life. In all , it symbolizes good luck.
Color: The color of “Lili” is blue, which is similar to the color of the logo of BJTU. On one hand, it embodies the characteristics of School of Science featured by rationality, preciseness and innovation. On the other hand, it is in line with characteristics of School of Science and what fish and water make people feel.
Behaviors: “Lili” rans cheerfully with a book in its left arm. The element of book displays the characteristics of academic disciplines. The running body represents the enterprising spirit of School of Science. Also it is appealing and encouraging for viewers.
 
Meanwhile, there are many other good design schemes, such as the mascot designed by Gan Yajian(a student from Siyuan class 1104) , which won great praise, and within which there are three lovely friends named “Lili”, “Xuexue” and “Yuanyuan” .

The unveiling ceremony of School of Science mascot will be held in a few days when the veil of the chosen mascot will be uncovered, and entities of mascot will be exhibited. Besides, it will be used as souvenirs of school activities in the near future.
 
There is still more progress to be made in order to present a perfect design of “Lili”. Therefore, more constructive advice will be sought and then applied to the improvement of “Lili”. All these efforts are expected to contribute to better reflecting the spiritual essence of scientific culture and distinctive characteristics of School of Science as well as playing the most significant role in building a good image for School of Science.
