The University of Yamanashi Gender Equality Office (former Female Researchers Support Office) and Pure Sogo (the Yamanashi Prefecture Gender Equality Promotional Center) will cosponsor a course lecture titiled “Let’s Talk About the Future of Science Girls!” for female highschool/junior highschool students within the prefecture.
It is such a waste to exclude the field of science from one’s studies without knowing what exactly the study of science is all about!! Wouldn’t you like the opportunity to picture your future while having casual talks with university teachers and actual university students?
The event will center around a key lecture by associate professor, Ms. Sayaka Yamashita of the Faculty of Life and Environmental Sciences (University of Yamanashi) titled “Choosing the Field of Science with a Positive Attitude ～ Will Your Future Path Expand with Infinite Possibilities?!～”. It then will be followed by 4 female students of the university introducing the joy of studying various fields of science.
The event will continue on to casual group discussions with teachers and students from each field course. It is a chance to get inside stories from actual students who study science and find out how they truly feel about their studies. It is also an opportunity to ask simple questions that you might find hard to ask your parents or an academic career counselor （＾＾）.
