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 26th 2022, the “Marine Environment” program was held in association with Matsuyama Minami High School, NPO Ehime Volunteers for Educational Support, and Nagoya University. The event was attended by first and second grade students of our math and science courses. 
   First, Tomoji HATANO, Representative of the NPO, who planned and supported the organization of this program, gave us a talk about the current situation of the program.
Second, Dr. Joji ISHIZUKA, President of “Space and Earth Environment Laboratory” at  Nagoya University, gave a lecture about “Circumstances of the Ocean Environment viewed from Outer space, ~from Global Warming to Malnutrition in the Sea and Micro-plastics~.”  He mentioned what he was able to find by observing, researching, and analyzing the marine environment. Students were able to understand easily thanks to his explanations. Students who do not usually have a chance to consider the sea in detail were able to gain interest in the underwater environment, plankton, along with other relevant topics. During the question-and-answer session, students asked him many questions.
   Afterwards, presentations were given by each of three groups, made up of second grade students who have been researching Sea Environment. Their titles were as follows:
’’Eliminating the sea polluted substances by Negibozu’’ by Negibo’s group.
’’Changes in the catch of shellfish and northward migration in the sea near Japan’’ by Sea group.
“Adsorption of harmful substances to marine plastics’’ by the SSH Plastic group.
After their presentations, Dr. ISHIZUKA gave us concrete and pertinent comments and advice about them, which the students diligently noted down. ■

Author’s Impression:
   I enjoyed Dr. Ishizaka’s lecture very much. I’m doing a research project about the ocean environment, so that lecture was particularly interesting for me. I asked a question about different kinds of plankton to him and he answered it kindly. That made me very happy. I’m going to do my best in my future researching life. – 209 Riku OOMASA
