Saitama Institute of Technology will hold the 2022 "Face-to-face / Online Open Lectures (5 times in total)" from June 2022, 6 (Saturday) as a plan to explain familiar topics to the general public in an easy-to-understand manner.No tuition fee.

 In this open course, a faculty member of Saitama Institute of Technology is in charge of a lecturer utilizing research and education in a specialized field. We offer courses on a wide range of fields, from science and weather and meteorological lectures by instructors with qualifications as weather forecasters.

 Until now, Saitama Institute of Technology has held "open lectures" for the general public, including the local city of Fukaya. In 2021, it was held only online due to the Korona-ka, but in 2022, it will be a "high flex type" extension course that combines "face-to-face" and "online" in response to requests from students.

 Students can choose between "face-to-face" and "online".The capacity is 150 people for "face-to-face" and 490 people for "online type" (first-come-first-served basis).The deadline will be reached as soon as the capacity is reached.Those who wish to participate must register within the application period from the application form on the Saitama Institute of Technology website.The contents of the extension course are as follows.
