HiSci Lab 2022

Workshop Overview

The Science Project for Ryukyu Girls Science Camp, which began in 2014, was renamed as HiSci Lab in 2021. In order to support the advancement of women into the STEM field, we encourage female high school students in Okinawa Prefecture to continue their education in STEM. "Hi-Sci" is an acronym for "High School" and "Science". The pronunciation is the same as Okinawan greeting, "Haisai!”

The theme for this year is “Okinawa = Longevity? Uncover the secret of healthy longevity!”
The workshop is scheduled for 2 days and 1 night (3 days and 2 nights for participants from remote islands).

※ Please note that the content of the workshop may be adjusted, or the workshop may be held online depending on the COVID-19 related restrictions.

Airfare, accommodation, and meals during the workshop will be provided by OIST.

HiSci Lab 2022 is supported by Okinawa Prefecture and the Council for Promotion of OIST.
