For a seven-day period from December 6 to December 12, one faculty member and eight university students from Chiang Mai Rajabhat University in Thailand experienced Japan's cutting-edge science and technology, with support from the Japan-Asia Youth Exchange Program in Science ("Sakura Science Plan") organized by the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST).

Through the implementation of the following three points, the objective of this plan is to aim to foster global cooperation in the field of science and technology in the future, and to foster the seeds.
(1) Have the students from Thailand see and hear about cutting-edge science and technology research
(2) Promote exchanges of students between Japan and Thailand
(3) Have participants experience the part of Japan's advanced civilization, in which the benefits of science and technology have become generally widespread

The Tokyo University of Science's Faculty of Industrial Science and Technology is divided into two campuses--its specialty division is located at the Katsushika Campus in Katsushika Ward, Tokyo, while the general education division is located at the Oshamambe Campus in Oshamambe Town, Hokkaido. In particular, as there are student dormitories at the Oshamambe Campus, general education based completely on a dormitory system is carried out.

During the first half of this program, the visitors observed research on cutting-edge science and technology by the specialized division at the Katsushika Campus. During the second half of this program, the visitors traveled to the Oshamambe Campus and experienced living in a dorm, while practicing experiments that serve as the basis for the research that they experienced at the Katsushika Campus, and also took part in classes on subsequent theories. In addition, taking into consideration the fact that Japan and Thailand are some of the world's leading fishing countries, the students visited fisheries facilities within the town, and also observed fisheries-related research on campus. Along with these visits and experiences, student exchanges were carried out in various forms so that they can be linked to exchanges of researchers in the future. Furthermore, the students also visited Tokyo Skytree, and on the shinkansen ride when traveling from Tokyo to Hokkaido, they were able to experience a part of Japan's advanced civilization, as a demonstration of the general popularization of the benefits of science and technology. Based on these, the abovementioned objectives were achieved.

The Tokyo University of Science is appreciative of JST, which has created such an opportunity for exchange.
