Lectures and practical training at “Ryudai Science Campus”(July 2021)

Section Leader Yoshimura gave a lecture at “Ryudai [University of the Ryukyus] Science Campus”, an education program for high school students in Okinawa Prefecture. The theme was "OKEON Churamori Project: Regional Collaboration through Environmental Research Aimed at Solving Problems in Okinawa”. After listening to the lecture, the students actually went outside to collect ants, then returned inside to sort the ants they had collected. All students who participated were very enthusiastic and made more achievements than we expected. We were heartened to see that they also perfected fire ant identification.
