  At the Social co-creation Contest 2021(sponsored by the Faculty of Social co-creation,Ehime University),the third-year science and mathematics course students,”Light Interference Group”,won second prize in research,inquiry,and DS categories.
  The research theme was”Potentialities of Iyokasuri given by comparing reactions of three kinds of cloth to the force,using the interference of laser light”(Yume Ninomiya,Wataru Katakami,Syouma Kunita,Sakura Sasaki).
  Iyokasuri,which originated in Matsuyama City,is declining in production due to westernization of daily life.We spent two years researching only to discover the hidden potential of Iyokasuri from a physical point ofview,which is different from the previous cultural and historical points of view.
  On the afternoon of August 3,Professor Soga of Ehime University visited the school and the award ceremony was held.We received a certificate,made of Basho Washi which developed by the Faculty of Social co-creation,Ehime University.After the award ceremony,we had a short roundtable discussion with Professor Soga to talk about the difficulties in research and our personal school life.
  Encouraged by this result,we will do our best to make our high school life even more fulfilling.
  We are very happy to be able to win an award for the research we have been doing.

Poster Competition 2020-2021 in JAPAN

Tweet ThisSend to Facebook | by kanri

 The poster made by three members including me won the first prize in “ISLP International Poster Competition 2020-2021 in JAPAN”.  And it was selected as a representative of Japan in the world competition.
 Our team thought about how to revitalize agriculture in Ehime prefecture from the data science, titled “Attractive Ehime Project.”  Our research started by analyzing a lot of data on agriculture in Ehime.  After analyzing the numerical value, five points were given as current issues, which are “Transition of Orange’s production in Ehime,” “Ehime’s output ranking,” “Transition of the number of agricultural workers of Ehime,” “The average age of agricultural workers,” an d “The employment rate of the disabled in Ehime, the first year of Reiwa era.”  Then we hit upon hydroponics as an effective measure in solving these issues.  Hydroponics is one of the methods for agriculture which is attracting attentions because it does not use the soil, so it is easy to replant, get stable production, and many other advantages.
 We thought that this might be an opportunity to think about diversity regardless of conventional agriculture such as citrus cultivation.  Moreover, we thought that it would be possible to promote the land use of closed schools because it can be used at low cost and the employment of people with disabilities because it would be easy to work and adjust heights of stands. 
 In addition, considering the feasibility, we specifically proposed the form of factory operation in collaboration with public institutions and the ideal land for building a factory.
 We believe that the development of such agricultural normalization should lead Ehime to the prefecture where agriculture is active and attractive.

 This was my first time working on data science, and I had a lot of trouble.  Thanks to supports from teachers and team members, our team was able to receive a wonderful award.  Thank all of people who helped me a lot for giving me a valuable experience. (204, Sae MATSUNAGA)

   On Sunday, July 18, we the fifth SSH students, who are “germinated brown rice team,” visited a laboratory of Dr. Moeka ISHIDA, who is assistant professor of Graduate School of Agriculture at Ehime University and our graduate of the second period SSH.
   Dr. ISHIDA belongs to the field of animal cell engineering education, which specializes in bio-engineering, and studies the functionary of food not only for animal cells but also for ones in experimental animals and human beings.  We have been conducting task research and receiving experimental guidance from members of Dr. ISHIDA’s laboratory.
   In order to avoid COVID-19, we had been taught online, but this time we were very glad to actually visit her laboratory.
   When I first visited there, I was surprised to find many research posters was on the wall in front of the laboratory.  And I was also moved to learn once again that many foods are being studied for their functionary.  Afterwards, we did conduct a protein quantification experiment after hearing the explanation of the results.  I really appreciated their sparing a lot of time to teach us despite their busy schedule.  Especially Dr. ISHIDA showed us cell culture experiments.  I could full-scale experiment up close and I almost forget the time went by.

   I thought it was a very valuable experience to be able to receive research guidance from our graduates.  I really envy SSH students because I am in the general course.

Also, with ZOOM, Mr. KARASUDANI Deputy Director of True Data Analytics Solutions, Inc., Fumikazu ONISHI Executive Director of Fuji Inc., Hirotaka SEKI President of Seki Corporation, and Mr. SHIRAISHI, a graduate of our school and student of Tokyo University, participated in this meeting online.

 Today's lecture was given by Mr. KARASUDABU, Deputy Director of True Data Analytics Solutions, Inc., on measures to improve sales based on purchase data.  The contents of this lecture were ①Key Performance Indicator settings, ②Sales analysis tree, ③Considering customer-contact points at 5W1H, ④Steps for action, ⑤Keywords for product appeal, and ⑥·Examples of AI-based comments for applications

 We were given an example and he explained to us the sales analysis tree, the steps for action, the categories of trend loading, and keywords for product-appeal.  Then we created a sales analysis tree based on the customer profile we created so far, and thought about why, what, when, where, and how (to have customers purchase) as action steps to increase the number of purchases.

 From now on, we will further discuss "Sales Analysis Tree", "Steps for Action in 5W1H" and "Appealing Keywords" based on the purchase data of each customer type.  And we will analyze what day of the week, what time zone of the day, and what kind of policy to customers is better to increase the number of customer-visits and purchases based on the contents of the previous lectures on promotional activities. Finally, we will consider target and product department that each section has been in charge of.

 Next time, we will hold an exchange meeting with three companies where students can discuss questions while considering measures.

 I was surprised that I could read a lot of things from the purchase data, and it could be schematically represented as an analysis tree.  I would like to take advantage of what I was taught in the lecture and think about measures.   (202 Ryoya IKEDA)



Data Marketing Program 6

 This year, Matsuyama Minami High school has been doing the Data Marketing Program cooperating with FUJI Co LTD, SEKI Co LTD and True Data Co LTD. (From 2021/03 to 2021/10)
 On Tuesday, June 8, the sixth seminar was held with four staff members from FUJI Co, LTD including Executive Fumikazu ONISHI and three staff members form SEKI Co LTD including President Hirotaka SEKI. Also through ZOOM, four staff members form True Data Co LTD including Mr. KARASUDANI and Mr. IZUMI, who were advisers of the fifth seminar, and Mr. SHIRAISHI, a graduate of our high school and student of Tokyo University.  This time, the lectures on “Retail Promotion” were done by Ms. Yano and Mr. Iwamoto.

 The contents of the lecture are following:

 “Retail Promotion” about ‘The role of Promotion about retail,’ ‘Kinds and features about Promotion,’ ‘The relationships between sales floor and Promotion,’ and ‘Measures.’

 “Targets” to ‘Announcement to Customer Types,’ ‘Categories of goods,’ ‘Which group to handle,’ ‘Reasons, features and Suggestions about customer types which we should aim at,’ ‘Current Status of Promotion at the stores,’

 The role of Promotion about retail is following:
 Acknowledge → Interest / Concern → Comparison / Consideration → Select.

 Mr. Iwamoto taught us that these approaches are very important while we are thinking about the relationships with our customers, using a procedure of falling in love as an example.
 When he talked about ”Kinds and features about Promotion,” he showed us Flyers, DMs, receipts, POP advertisements, HP, SNS, and real fruits, which are really using at a store.  And he added advantages and disadvantages about those things.
When he talked about “The relationship between sales floor and Promotion,”  he explained to us "classic," "end," "flatbed," "exhibition hall," "overhang," "menus," "flyers and sales floors," "digital devices and sale floors."  What matters most is customers have interest in our store.
 When we use some “Measures,” without enough preparation, these will not bring good results. They told us that we should think about measures carefully.

 Next time, we will have a lecture on "The contents about field work," which will be given by a staff member of True Data Co LTD.  And we will put our plans into practice at a store.

 I couldn’t read the data at all at first. However I was able to read the date because thanks to the many people who taught me and cooperated with the group. I want to do my best. (203 Kanato ONISHI)

   On March 21st, two teams gave their final presentations online.  We were the two groups out of the finalists of “WiDS HIROSHIMA Ideathon 2021”.
   WiDS stands for “Women in Data Science” supported by Stanford University ICME(Institute for Computational & Mathematical Engineering).  The goal is to foster people in the field of data science regardless of sex.
   This year’s theme was “Data Science and Healthcare” and we suggested some ideas for how to utilize data.
   Team Minami’s theme was “To get rid of stress from children” and explained that  pediatric medicine in some areas is insufficient using the figures like “the number of facilities offering medicine per 100000 children in each prefecture” and “the number of pediatricians in each town in Ehime prefecture per 1000 children”.
   We also introduced our branch school’s a hospital art project and how to utilize art in the hospitals.  We suggested using empty houses as medical facilities with art displayed inside.  Fortunately we got the second prize.
    Team Blood Sugar Level Management’s theme was “Project for reduction of diabetes”.  They measured blood sugar levels using factors such as diets, eating speed and eating order.  We can lower the blood sugar levels more by chewing, eating methods and our lifestyles.  We invented an application, “KamuKamu Care”(fuctions include: counting steps, counting the number of chews and calorie management).  We got the third prize.

   DIG stands for Disaster, Imagination and Game.  The participants practice considering  possible disasters, their prevention and countermeasures against them using a map.  On March 18th, in the 6th and 7th periods we had the practice online.
   Not only MEs(Maintenance Experts) in Ehime and Gifu prefectures but professors in Ehime University and Gifu University joined the program.  Through this activity we could imagine disasters which we would face in the future and the goal is to have the power to think and act by ourselves to protect our lives.
    Step 1  To find the differences between the present and the past.
    Step 2  To find out the dangerous places and the safe places to evacuate.
    Step 3  What should we do in the case of heavy rain?
   After the practice, we talked about the following themes.
    1  the most potentially disastrous places in Matsuyama
    2  the best way to evacuate
   Prof. Sawada from Gifu University and Prof. Moriwaki from Ehime University advised that it is never too late to think about what we should do and that we must always think about what to do to protect our lives.  They added that we should make the best action plan beforehand by talking with our families.

 First, we made a presentation titled “Comparison of cloth using light interference.”
Second, we heard the presentation by our ALT, titled “The differences between Eastern medicine and Western medicine”.  After listening to each presentation, we had questions and answers by using some effective words which we had learned in the lessons of Communication English Ⅱ.

   Through this class, I keenly realized my lack of English skills, because I couldn’t answer questions accurately.  So, I must improve my English skills.  In addition, I need to improve not only English but also my research.  ( 209HR  Yume Ninomiya )

 First year students in science and mathematics course have continued to learn about “Data Science” since last week.  We thought that we would need to reach conclusions from concrete data.  For example, “Seventy-three out of one hundred people like chocolate.”  From this data, can we say that the cause of bad teeth is chocolate?  If not, what other data is needed?  I pray that it will not be the cause of bad teeth.

 I learned that I must not judge only by figures.  I want to use these figures in a research program to get a reliable conclusion.   ( 109HR  Sae Shingu )

    Today is the second day of our training at UCON.  In the morning we had a workshop with Woodstock Academy students continuing from yesterday.
    In the experiment, first, we confirmed light emission by electron transfer.  Next, we measured the absorption spectrums of light and compared them.  We worked with the group members to prepare solutions and measured spectral peaks of wavelengths.  We were able to improve the experiment communicating in English.
   In the afternoon, Dr. Mani reviewed the two-day experiment and then he gave a lecture on his research.  Yesterday’s and Today’s experiments are both called “electron transfer reactions.”  They were related to the contents of the 1992 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, so Dr. Mani gave us a detail of these principals.  He also explained Mr.Jason’s research, who belongs to his laboratory.  After that, we asked Dr. Mani why he chose an overseas university.  We also asked his ways of thinking as a researcher and so on.  We were able to listen to a lot of very useful stories from Dr. Mani and felt happy.
   Thanks to Dr. Mani, we were able to spend two whole days at UCON.  We would like to thank Dr. Mani and make the best use of what we learned and experienced in UCON in the future.
