Extension Course for HS students -- "Learning about the Functions of Protein"

2014-10-19 (Sun) -

The purpose of this hands-on course --The shape of a new era, which must come, in education and classroom instruction?-- is not merely to provide high school students with a chance to see the university from the inside, but rather, by means of actual experimentation, to help student experience the allure and fun of experimentation and real research.

On Sunday, October 19, under sponsorship of the Department of Biological Sciences, Graduate School of Science, an extension course for HS students, "Learning about the Functions of Protein," will be held at the School of Science at Osaka University. The course takes a full day. By means of a "Hota-light" [a light that produces light through the process used by fireflies], students will learn about "a function of protein," while experiencing the allure and fun of experimentation and actual research. What's more, one aim of this course is to help students realize in their own way that "It's all right to make a mistake, but at least one must settle upon one's own way" when conducting experiments or research.


There's no charge for taking part in this course; however, advance registration is required.
