about Matsuyama Minami High School

 Ehime Prefectural Matsuyama Minami High School has been designated as a Super Science High School (SSH) by Japan's Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology since 2002. We have been researching and developing programs for science education in cooperation with universities and research institutes. We try to bring fascinating and inspiring science activities not only to our students but also to the local community.  Each of our students does a great deal of individual research, and because of their strenuous effort, they have won prizes in various kinds of science fairs.

about SSH

 The SSH project was started in 2002 as part of the "Scientific Literacy Enhancement Initiative" by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology. It aims to develop student abilities and develop global leaders with great ambitions in the field of science. And technology. As of 2021, there are 218 high schools designated as SSH, including ours.

      On January 9th, the program "Space: The Ultimate Field Trip" (Space Engineering, Life in Space, etc.) was hosted at our school in collaboration with the Director of the Space Research Institute Grant Consortium at the University of Hawaii, Art Kimura and Rene Kimura. This year, we invited Miyazaki Prefectural Nobeoka High School and Yamaguchi Prefectural Shimonoseki West High School, and we three schools all took part in the program.

      From our school, 37 students from the 1st and 2nd grades of the regular courses and science and mathematics courses participated. Mr. Kimura explained the extraordinary and mysterious phenomena that occur when living in space in an easy-to-understand manner using demonstrations of scientific experiments. Although tending to seem difficult at first glance, learning about and understanding these mysterious phenomena is essential for the intellectual profession and space development technology, and life in space is established by applying basic scientific concepts as well as familiar technologies. We were able to see space in an up-close-and-personal way.

      After Mr. Art Kimura's presentation, a question and answer session on space was held, and all three schools asked questions about life in space. We students learned freely about life in space and the latest space-related news, along with a question-and-answer session held in English. Art Kimura praised us for the questions we asked. Through this initiative, we were able to strongly experience the contentment of grappling with challenges.■

Author’s Impression: It was interesting that the technology necessary for space development was already familiar to our lives.  So, I came to realize that the technology we know and regularly use can be useful for other things, and the technology we don't know how to use can be useful for almost anything. 209.
