Discovery Event for Aspiring Female Scientists

A discovery event for aspiring female scientists was held at the TOKYO ELECTRON House of Creativity on March 2, 2019. This event was aimed at first and second year female high school students who are interested in enrollment at Tohoku University and wish to become scientists.

This event consisted of a lab tour at Graduate School of Information Sciences, Tohoku University, lectures by leading female scientists, and group discussions with other participants facilitated by female graduate students from Tohoku University.

Through this event, we would like female high school students to feel familiar with cutting edge science and to clearly see the valuable contribution that female scientists can make to society. Thus, by holding this event, we aim to develop female leaders who can create an affluent society for future next generations.
