Science Videos for Children

Updated April 22, 2020

The OIST Media Section Team is creating a science video series to support families with young children whose schools have closed to stop the spread of the new coronavirus. The initiative joins the effort of the Japanese Association of Communication for Science and Technology (JACST), which is comprised of science communicators from different institutes and universities in Japan.

This developing video series aims to inspire elementary students in scientific inquiry through recent discoveries at OIST.
