Stockholm International Youth Science Seminar (SIYSS)

Ms. Kanako TODA
M2 Division of Sustainble Resourses Engineering
Laboratory of Environmental Geology

During the week leading to the Nobel Prize award ceremony on December 10th Swedish Federation of Young Scientists invites young scientists chosen by their countries to the Stockholm International Youth Science Seminar (SIYSS). The seminar keeps running for more than 40 years.

This year, I joined the SIYSS2017 as one of two young scientist representing Japan, so I’d like share about it a little here! Tons of inspirations!

【Kudo-san’s Farewell Party!2017. 12.20】

One of the administrators at the International Affairs Office of Engineering resigned her position on the 22nd December after working almost 3 years. She helped students about a lot of things, and her friendly personality made the office even better. To show our appreciation to her, we had a farewell party! We gave her speech, a photo book, presents, and had lunch together. We really miss her, but we all hope that she enjoys the next chapter of her life!

Report for the KMMF Philosophy Seminar in Kanazawa

November 18 -19, 2017

In this event, there were 43 international students gathered at Kanazawa from 11 top universities in Japan. From north to south, they are Hokkaido, Tohoku, Tsukuba, Tokyo, IUJ, Kyoto, Doshisha, Ritsumeikan, Osaka, NAIST, and Kyushu respectively. There are normally 4 scholars for each university; 2 senior students (M2) are from last year and 2 junior students (M1) have been selected 1 month before; Since now, it is the 2nd year for the KMMF scholarship program taking place at Hokkaido University, we already have Meegoda (M2), Lai (M2), Zhou (M1) and Wahyuni (M1). Our Hokkaido team have the special culture that we usually bring the local omiyage to the meeting place and share it with everybody who comes from other universities. We brought Shiroi Koibito for this year and Hokudai buns for the last year.

Through the 2-day trip, KMMF expects that we will not only deepen understanding of the philosophy of Konosuke Matsushita, but also build human relationships with other KMMF scholars who have different cultural or academic backgrounds. Furthermore, through sightseeing in Kanazawa, they hope we will learn and experience the traditional Japanese culture, since KMMF hopes to offer something more than financial support.

【Welcome Trip for new e3 members! 2017/10/14】

As one of the e3 tradition, we went for e3 Welcome Trip for new students on October 14th!

First, we stopped by Shinsen-numa in Kyowacho. We all enjoyed the board-walk towards the bog, and saw leaves changing the color around there. It had autumn atmosphere, and it was worth-visiting. Then, we headed to Yamamoto Sightseeing Orchard in Yoichi where we can enjoy the various fruit picking. When we went there, grapes and apples were on season, so e3 students were looking for the sweetest grapes…😊

After stuffed with delicious fruit, we rode on the boat, “New Shakotan-go” in Shakotan.

There was a basement on the boat where we could observe undersea though the windows. There were sea urchin, white edged rock fish, sardine, and many fish and sea creatures. At last, we fed seagulls on the boat. They were so quick to take the food! It started raining towards the end, but we could enjoy all outdoor activities as planned. I am excited to go out with all e3 students next time.

【E3 orientation for new international students 2017 Oct】

52 students including the students continued his/her studies from Master to PhD at HU joined e3 for October 2017 intake! It was very exciting for us to meet new students. They are coming from different countries, cultures, and background. We are very grateful that e3 is getting more and more diverse and multicultural. There is one thing that all students have in common… they are all outstanding! Professors, staff members, and friend will support his or her journey to become an internationally competitive engineer. Now the journey begins from here!

【e3 Graduation Party on September 21st, 2017】

E3 had a graduation party for the graduating students on September 21st from 6:15pm. Graduating students briefly shared their research, how she/he felt when coming to Japan first time, what is the future goal… some are going to be doctoral student in HU, and some are going to back to their countries, and the others are looking for job opportunities inside/outside Japan. 31 e3 students must have had struggles, and sleepless night during schooling, but at the end they did really good job, and I am very proud of all of them. In addition, I would thank to professors who supported all years for e3 students. They opened students’ career path, and made amazing international engineers. Congratulations on all of the graduating students! We are always here for you😊
