The Girls Science Club held last August was well received, offering hands-on chemistry experiments, roundtable discussions with Keio university female students and alumnae, and a meeting between parents and faculty and staff members (see photos).

This year, the Girls Science Club will be held within the framework of this Girls Meet STEM College. We are preparing to provide junior high and high school female students with an opportunity to enjoy learning about STEM fields and experiencing actual student life. Stay tuned!
