One-day chemistry class for high-school students

Experience of Chemistry

The One-day chemistry class for high-school students in 2024 will be held in Japanese only.

The One-Day Chemistry Class is an attempt to provide high school students with an opportunity to experience the fun and wonder of chemistry through experiments. Many of our predecessors have become chemists because of their fascination with chemistry experiments, and many of them have become chemists because of this fascination. The content of the experiments is designed to be understandable and interesting to high school students by the members of the College of Chemistry, who have taken cues from the latest research. We hope that high school students from around the world who share a common interest in chemistry will enjoy the chemistry experiments as well as the atmosphere of the University of Tsukuba campus.
