Outreach lectures for students

Summer is a good season for students to learn in a special class. Professor Vincent Laudet gave an online class to high school students in Oita in the frame of the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) Festa. Ken Maeda talked to local children about freshwater and marine animals at a class in Onna-OIST Children’s School of Science. Unfortunately, students could not touch and observe living animals and specimens directly as the lecture was provided by ZOOM, but we hope that they could learn the diversity of the Okinawan freshwater fish, the impacts of introduced animals, dangerous animals, and many things!
