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.

Organizer: Ehime University Environmental ESD Instructor Training Course
Joint Sponsorship: Ehime Prefectural Matsuyama Minami High School “Ehime High School Students SDGs Meeting”

[The First Meeting]
(1) All-Genders Area
(2) SDGs School Area

 In the 3rd Year of the Reiwa Era, the Ehime High School SDGs (“sustainable development goals”) meeting was held. The first and second grade students participated in this meeting. This year, it was planned/organized by Ehime University students. We discussed “what we can do” and “what we want to change” with Prof. Osamu KOBAYASHI and five university students.

 Though Minecraft is a popular video game these days, it seems that it is being introduced in elementary schools in developed countries as a tool for learning programming. Since it seems to not yet have been introduced in higher education to a large/significant degree, we were only able to experience “advanced science.” Owing to Internet security reasons, students were not permitted to use their own PCs, however they were able to experience “SDGs in Minecraft” with university students’ PCs. ■

Author’s Opinion: Although it is a little difficult to consider SDGs as a personal problem, I thought it was interesting and easy to understand, because I could think about SDGs in the context of a virtual school built in Minecraft. I think it is important not only to verbalize what I think but also to be able to visualize it in order to find ways to solve the problem. (204 Rei MATSUMOTO)
