High School, Technical High School, and University students -- "Create together, compete together!" -- 8th Jumping Contest!!!

2014-8-4 (Mon) - 2014-8-6 (Wed)

The Creative Design Studio for Technology of the School of Engineering and Graduate School of Engineering, Osaka University, will hold a Summer Seminar for High School & Technical High School Students, the 8th Jumping Machine Contest.

The record so far for the highest jump is 182 cm. Like to try and beat it? If so, we look forward to seeing you!

Working in small groups, participants will design and create jumping machines. Participants will be able to experience the process of making a rough sketch for their idea(s), drawing an actual design, making the jumping machine, preparing presentation materials, and, finally, making the presentation itself.
 No preliminary knowledge about jumping machines is needed. The machines will be constructed in consultation with Osaka University faculty members and/or graduate students.

High school students and technical high school students, don't miss this great opportunity to come to Osaka University and get "the real picture"!
