We will give a series of lectures to introduce research about space science for students who are considering entering the Department of Space and Astronautical Science at SOKENDAI.

The lectures are given by faculty members of the Department of Space and Astronautical Science, who also are researchers at the cutting-edge of space science at the Institute of Space and Astronautical Science, JAXA. They will talk about fundamental matters as well as cutting-edge topics in their specialized field for undergraduate students.

Many students who currently belong to SOKENDAI, etc. and conduct research at the Institute of Space and Astronautical Science will also attend the lectures. You can ask them questions freely about school life, etc. after the lectures.
