In 2015, the University of Tokyo held an event "Let's experience cutting-edge engineering research at the University of Tokyo Seiken!" For female junior and senior high school students to learn about cutting-edge engineering research from female researchers at the Institute of Industrial Science, the University of Tokyo. It will be held on November 11st.
The "Institute of Industrial Science, University of Tokyo Next Generation Development Office (ONG)", which manages the event, is a new model of educational activities in which the Institute of Industrial Science, University of Tokyo collaborates with industry to develop the next generation of researchers and engineers. It is an institution established with the aim of introducing school education for cutting-edge science and technology. Since 1997, we have been holding on-site lessons for junior and senior high school students, and holding "Komaba Research Campus Opening for Future Scientists" to get in touch with the field of cutting-edge science and technology research in cooperation with Tokyo Metro and others. doing.
The event to be held this time aims to make female junior and senior high school students aware of the appeal of science through interaction with young female researchers and students who are active in the Institute of Industrial Science, the University of Tokyo.The program includes a lecture "Material Development Using Defects" by Yuki Tokumoto, a lecturer in the material and environment department of the Institute of Industrial Science, the University of Tokyo, and a lecture "Global Water Circulation" by Misako Hatano, a first-year doctoral student at Kei Yoshimura Laboratory. "The role of floods in Tokyo" is planned, and panel discussions and exchange meetings are also held.
Participants in the event are female junior and senior high school students (capacity 30 people) and parents, and the venue is the Institute of Industrial Science, University of Tokyo on the Komaba II Research Campus.Applications can be made from the website of the Next Generation Training Office, Institute of Industrial Science, University of Tokyo.
