Unna Junior High School Science Club

One of the missions of OIST is to be a bridge between the local Okinawa community and the world of international science. The Unna Junior High School Science Club was established as a joint effort by OIST and Unna Junior High School in October 2021 to support STEM education for junior and senior high school students in Okinawa and promote an interdisciplinary approach to community education.
