Three World Premier International Research Center Initiative (WPI) Institutes, including I2CNER, ran booths at the “Super Science High Schools (SSH) Student Workshop,” which was held at the INTEX Osaka on August 5th and 6th. The event is intended to foster students’ interest in science and technology and promote the SSH project. I2CNER, the Advanced Institute for Materials Research (AIMR), and the International Center for Materials Nanoarchitectonics (MANA), each ran a booth to introduce its research. 6 WPI researchers, including Dr. Helena Téllez (Electrochemical Energy Conversion Division), gave lectures at “Researchers Mini Live.” More than 30 high school students and teachers attended Dr. Tellez’s lecture, in which she described her research and her career path from high school to the present-day. 25 overseas high schools and nearly 100 students presented their research at the event, making this SSH Student workshop the most international one to date.
