Course description and aims

This course starts with the networking session of the students enrolled in the School of Science followed by two rounds with more practical experience of science through lectures or seminars in four smaller groups divided according to the Departments of Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Earth and Planetary Sciences in the School of Science. It emphasizes the importance of self thinking, communication and discussion between students and instructors, or by students themselves. Also it provides an opportunity for students to think what is learning, and furthermore to consider their own future direction.

Student learning outcomes

The students are expected to
1) experience practical researches being conducted in the Departments in the School of Science, and
2) obtain information useful to choose a proper department for further study from sophomore.
