UK-Japan Young Scientists Working Together

Bristol, July 22-30, 2001 A Japan 2001 Festival Event
Patron: The Rt Hon the Lord Jenkin of Roding

The more we can build international links among young people, particularly in the field of science which is itself entirely international in its impact, the better it will be for the future of the human race and the world we inhabit.
-Rt Hon the Lord Jenkin of Roding, Workshop Patron, welcoming the students to the Japan 2001 Workshop

An important first in UK-Japan partnership; that the Workshop was so rapidly over subscribed by students, particularly young women, in both countries, shows that our approach has real resonance with young people.
-Dr Eric Albone, Cliftron Scientific Trust, Workshop Director

· Post-16 Students from schools across Britain and Japan are coming together to work for a week in small UK-Japan teams on a wide range of genuine open-ended science-related explorations which challenge their ingenuity and creativity.

· The UK-Japan Student Teams, led by top scientists, engineers, and social scientists, will be working in the fields of Aeronautics, Archaeology, Chemistry, Earthquake Engineering, Environment, Ethics in Medicine, Space Science, Science through Theatre, Vulcanology and Wildlife Conservation.

· In the process the students will not only put their school knowledge to use and discover something of the "scientist in themselves", but also by living and working together they will come to share and value each other's ways of thinking and working.

· Outcomes will be presented publicly by the Student Teams on Friday 27 July (14.00-17.00pm) at the University of Bristol Physics Department, Tyndall Avenue, Bristol, through Reports and products, and on the Workshop Website.

Patrons: The Rt Hon the Lord Jenkin of Roding, The Lord Walton of Detchant
The Rt Hon Sir Richard Needham, Professor Colin Blakemore, FRS, Professor Richard Gregory, FRS
