Kumamoto University International Students Interact with Local High School Students
On Monday July 10, ten international students from Kumamoto University visited Dai-Ni High School, a local high school in Kumamoto which has been designated as a “Super Science High School” by the Japanese Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology.
The researchers listened as students of Dai-Ni High School presented their research topics in English, and then asked questions about the scientific process and results of each topic.
The high school students and researchers overcame challenging language barriers to enjoy scientific communication in English. Kumamoto University’s Global Youth Campus looks to continue providing opportunities for local exchange between the university’s international students and the young local community.
