Culture is the soul of a nation. The progress in the field of science and technology also needs to draw strength from traditional culture. Therefore, establishing cultural self-confidence is an important way to build a powerful country in science and technology. As a comprehensive scientific and technological work in China in the 17th century, the book Heavenly Creations contains the summary of the chemical knowledge of the ancients in production practice and combines Chinese traditional culture and scientific concepts. This work extracts the chemical knowledge from the Heavenly Creations and the excellent traditional Chinese culture, which was integrated and introduced into the course of "chemistry and human civilization". This work is of great importance to the inheritance of science and technology and culture, especially in the students' minds to establish "scientific and technological culture confidence".

Key words: Science and technology inheritance, Cultural confidence, General education, Ideological and political education
