OIST SEED PROGRAM
OIST STEM Experience, Exploration, and Discovery (SEED) Program is designed for Super Science High schools (SSH) and high schools with science-oriented curricula nationwide. After assessing the needs of participating schools, we aim to provide experiences that will stimulate students' interest in science and technology and develop new research skills that can contribute to future studies.
At the same time, the program can also contribute to increasing the motivation of students who aspire to work internationally in the future by conducting science activities in English. Through various interactions with international students, researchers, and staff at OIST, the program offers opportunities for participants not only to learn about science but also about their future careers.
If you have any questions about the program, please feel free to contact us.
The program is designed to provide a deeper understanding of science through an introduction to our research, campus and lab tours, lectures and presentations by researchers, and activities that bring the research experience closer to students. We will adjust the program content as needed based on the student’s grade and the number of participants. Programs can also be organized over multiple days, and we are currently conducting an on-site program only. Thank you for your understanding.
