“Our goal is to make it possible for every Okinawan high school student to visit OIST.”
The most visible way the university benefits the prefecture is through community education and outreach activities that stimulate interest in science and introduce local students and adults to the world of science and technology research. In addition, OIST's international, English-language community demonstrates the importance of English education for success in domestic and international job markets. Local students can see that English is more than yet another academic requirement for graduation and entrance exams; it is the key to a successful career.
OIST outreach programs and activities are targeted to audiences defined by age and education level. Use the links below to find information.
