Abstract
Knowing how to do divergent thinking is very important for cultivating the creativity of college students in high education. In this paper, an advanced technique--electrospraying was exploited as an example to explain how to foster the undergraduate students' divergent thinking. From the preparation of a working solution, the implementation of electrospraying process, the characterization of electrosprayed microparticles, and also the final potential applications of the mediated microproducts. Each of the above-mentioned steps comprises good materials for promoting the students to think divergently, learn actively, judge and make a decision using convergent thinking. It is suggested for high education that advanced technologies can be utilized as useful tools for cultivating the students' divergent thinking and innovation capability.
