Science Café at Machikane-yama (1st semester, 2009)

Come to the Museum on Saturday afternoon!

How about enjoying the "science café" at the Museum of Osaka University on Saturday afternoon?

This year's science cafe at the Museum of Osaka University will be the second time this popular event has been held. The first time this event was held last year ended on a high note with great attendance.

The Science Cafe event will be a platform for students to discuss science topics with researchers directly. In this way, the Science Cafe hopes to narrow the gap between specialists and the public.

Program

We're surrounded by artificial products.

These artificial products appear unrelated to philosophy or thoughts.

But the idea that thoughts, philosophy, politics and social relationships are embedded in these artificial products with specific forms has become a topic of discussion recently.

It is hoped that the cafe will be the place where attendees and specialists will think of relationships between technology and society in relation to the design of daily commodities.

Design of daily commodities

Coordinator: NAKAMURA Masaki, Institute for Higher Education Research and Practice

Intended for: Junior high school students or older

Time: 2:00 - 3:30 p.m. (The museum closes at 5:00 p.m.)

Quota: 30

Admission fee: There is no charge for admission, but a refreshment fee of 200 yen will be collected.

There is room for more persons to attend, so attendees will be admitted until either the program begins (at 2:00) or all seats are filled.
