(Feb. 08) Cooperative Educational Program between University (TAOYAKA Program) and High School

Cooperative Educational Program between University (TAOYAKA Program) and High School

Students from the one of the Super Global High Schools from Kagoshima, 鹿児島県立甲南高等学校, came to Hiroshima University to share their research and receive advice from the TAOYAKA Students!

First, the students listened to the lecture from Dr. Nguyen Thi Anh Hong, Assistant Professor, Graduate School for International Development and Cooperation (IDEC). Then after the lunch break, all 14 high school students were divided into 3 groups and each student had an opportunity to present his/her research on “demographic issues in Japan” to the TAOYAKA program students and received feedback. It was also a great opportunity for the TAOYAKA students to  share their expertise to these young and future scholars. In fact, we were amazed by the students’ level of English and research skills at their age. There are active discussions during the session and students developed a wonderful networking between the high school and the University.

The details are as follows.
