≪Invitation to the “ISSJ 2018 SPRING PROGRAM”Open Lecture and Student Presentations≫
15 Students from all over the world, will present an intervention for a societal issue through science
International School of Science Founding Project/ISSJ (Representative, Ryuichi Nomura) believes that science is a universal language that can be used as a driving force to create innovation and therefore encourages young talented people to conduct research around the world to come up with technology and concepts that can further develop the world. By 2020, ISSJ plans to establish an international high school in Japan that will produce individuals that are not only active researchers themselves, but those who can successfully contribute to the world through research.
“ISSJ 2018 SPRING PROGRAM” will offer the first spring program this year from past 3 years summer program held. 15 very talented students, from around the world who are carefully selected from over 100 applicants. The OIST Graduate University shall conduct internationally outstanding education and research in science and technology and promote and sustain the advancement of science and technology in Japan and throughout the world. They will conduct project learning with student research. Applicants through group work, produce an experiment plan that will use science to intervene a social issue, which will then be presented.
On April 9th the final day, the 15 students will present their experimental scientific intervention for an assigned futuristic issue. The final presentations will be open to the public. We extend an invitation to any and all media personnel and look forward to welcoming everyone there
