Fifty-one High School Students from Taiwan and Brazil Visit TUS as Part of the JST-led Sakura Exchange Program in Science

2018.05.30 Wednesday


On Monday, May 28, 2018, fifty-one high school students from Taiwan and Brazil, who are in Japan as part of the Japan-Asian Youth Exchange Program in Science (Sakura Exchange Program in Science) operated by the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST), paid a visit to the Tokyo University of Science (TUS) Kagurazaka Campus.

The students arrived in the morning and were greeted by International Division Manager Narayan, who talked to them about TUS. They listened with rapt attention and had many questions about studying abroad at TUS.

Afterwards, the students visited the Mathematical Experience Plaza as part of their tour of TUS facilities. Here, they eagerly engaged in 'hands-on' mathematical learning, trying out the many displays and asking numerous questions.

At lunchtime, the students ate with some of the international students at TUS and listened as they told them about campus life and about life in Japan. Their stories helped provide these high school students with a more tangible idea of what it is like to study abroad in Japan.

In the afternoon, the students explored the magical world of mathematics through a memorable lecture provided by Professor Jin Akiyama, a specially appointed TUS Vice President and the Director of the Research Center for Math and Science Education.

Despite the demanding schedule, which went from morning until evening, the students' interest never flagged; they sought to make the most of every moment and departed with smiles on their faces.
