Tsukuba International School will be beginning a series of lectures in simple English as a community service. The first in the series will be on Saturday, April 13 from 10 to 11:30 am at the Oho Kominkan Shichokakushitsu Hall (near the junction of Higashi Odori and Nishi Odori.
The purpose of this lecture series is to give an opportunity to listen to an easy-to-understand lecture in English. Anyone 12 years old and up is welcome to participate. While the lecture is given in English, the audience may ask questions either in English or in Japanese. Answers to questions will be given in English. The first lecture will be given by Tokio Kenneth Ohska, Ph.D. on the theme "What is Science for?" The talk can be summarized as follows: Science has tended to be looked at as something of no practical use. But this is not the case. A scientist from the High Energy Accelerator Research Organization in Tsukuba will describe how really important science is for our daily lives.
The lecture series is supported by the Board of Education of the city of Tsukuba, and there is no admission charge.
