On July 10, 2019 (WED), 50 high school students from China visited the Tokyo University of Science Kagurazaka Campus under the "Sakura Science Exchange Program" (Sakura Science Plan) sponsored by the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST).

When the students arrived at the university on that morning, welcoming remarks were provided by the Director of the Center for Promotion of Internationalization. Then a section chief in charge of the International Affairs Section provided with an overview of the university. The students carefully listened to the explanations and eagerly asked many questions about TUS programs for foreign students.

The visiting students then participated in a mathematics lecture conducted by Professor Hitoshi Akiyama, who is a Specially Appointed Vice-Principle and Director of the Research Center for Math and Science Education. Akiyama impressed upon these students the almost magical enjoyment of mathematics.

In the afternoon, the visiting students toured university facilities and visited the Mathematical Experience Plaza. Here, they were able to learn about mathematics first hand by independently experiencing the various hands-on exhibits and lively asking many questions.

Despite the long schedule from the morning into the evening, the curiosity and enthusiasm of the visiting students never waned. After a busy day full of various activities, they departed with smiling faces all around.
