We will be holding a science fair which allows high school students from all over the world who are aiming to become scientists and engineers the opportunity for scientific exchange. As the globalization of society rapidly continues, international collaboration is becoming more and more important. This year at Ritsumeikan’s 15th Science Fair, it is our desire that you get a 1) strong sense of mission to make active contributions to the world, 2) a valuable network of cooperation across countries, and 3) a big dream to be active for the future. We hope to support the gifted students gathered here the opportunity to spread their wings and fly high into the future.
The History of the Science Fair at Ritsumeikan
The Fair begins with just 3 participating schools, welcoming a school from Australia.
As a part of the national Super Science High School program which started in 2002, the fair took place under the name of "Rits Super Science Fair".
The fair marks Ritsumeikan High School’s 100th anniversary.
With an increase in scale, the fair becomes a major event at Ritsumeikan High School.
The 4th ISSF (International Students Science Fair) is held at Ritsumeikan High School.
The size of the fair increases with the hosting of the ISSF in concurrence with the 6th Science Fair.
The Science Fair is held as the Japan Super Science Fair.
After receiving national designation as a Core Super Science High School, the fair is renamed JSSF (Japan Super Science Fair).
We hope that the JSSF will continue to make great developments in the future and be able to contribute to science education around the world.
