SCORE! Creating the Next Generation of Scientists, Engineers, and Entrepreneurs

6th SCORE! Creating the Next Generation of Scientists, Engineers, and Entrepreneurs

What is SCORE?!?

SCORE! is designed to promote senior high school students’ hands-on science education and interest in entrepreneurship, as well as support the approach for English-Oriented Prefecture Okinawa.

  1. Do a science project—something new or something you’ve done before.
  2. Think about how the project can be used in business or daily life. How can you make money from it? How can you make life simpler or better?
  3. Enter SCORE!
  4. Give a short oral presentation about your project.
  5. Prizes include round-trip tickets from Okinawa to the U.S., iPads, and an internship opportunity at OIST.
