Japan-UK student science workshops at Cambridge University for pupils from Miyagi, Fukushima and Ibaraki
The Japan Foundation is pleased to support the participation of 21 students and teachers from 6 senior high schools from amongst the prefectures of Miyagi, Fukushima and Ibaraki affected by the recent Great East Japan earthquake and tsunami disaster. From 24th July, they will participate in joint Japan-UK group workshops on various scientific subjects taught by Cambridge University Professors, as well as visiting the Royal Society, the Royal Institution and University College in London. Dr Eric Albone of the Clifton Scientific Trust, who is organizing the weeklong event, says
“We are delighted to welcome to Cambridge students and teachers from schools in Japan which have suffered so much from the effects of the March 11th tsunami and earthquake to attend the 2011 UK-Japan Young Scientist Workshop at the University of Cambridge this summer. As a result of the generosity of many organisations, we are able to cover all of the schools' costs in Cambridge and also their airfares from Japan. We and all the British students and teachers look forward very much to welcoming them to England as our special guests. We are sure that, by living and working together in small teams with Cambridge scientists and engineers, not only will their understanding of science deepen but also they will see their futures in a global context and form international friendships which will last for many years ”
