What is SCORE?!?

SCORE! is designed to promote senior high school students’ hands-on science education and interest in entrepreneurship, as well as to support English language education and the goal of becoming a global citizenship.

  • Enter SCORE!
  • Do a science project—something new or something you’ve done before.
  • 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?
  • Give a short oral presentation about your project.
  • Prizes include round-trip tickets from Okinawa to the U.S., iPads, and an internship opportunity at OIST.
