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.

The Stars are Calling Us: the 20th annual Astronaut Lacy Veach Day of Discovery

Tweet ThisSend to Facebook | by kanri

   On October 31st, forty students from ourhigh school took part in the virtual event of “The Stars are Calling Us: the 20thannual Astronaut Lacy Veach Day of Discovery.” This program has been conductedby Hawaii Space Grant Consortium in order to promote STEM education in schools,and is expected to develop the students’ scientific minds.

   Due to the time zone difference betweenMatsuyama and Hawaii, the program started as early as 07:00 local time. Despitethis, students attentively listened to lectures of the professors, and byjoining the program, they came to realize the importance of challengingthemselves with new things.

Acomment from a student: On that day,scientists and research students of the university taught us the fun of sciencethrough various experiments and observation.  I was particularly interested in theexperiment that explained how rockets are able to fly.  This was explained straightforwardly bycomparing balloons to beach balls.  Atthe lecture, I was able to learn both the fun of space engineering and thenatural English spoken by native speakers, which was a valuable experience forme.
