Comments from team leader Shibusawa

Our research consumed more time than we expected, and preparing our posters and presentations in English was tough. We managed to complete everything on time by combining our abilities as a team.

This event was a great opportunity to learn about and discuss the research conducted by high school students in other countries. As a representative of Tokyo Tech High School of Science and Technology, We are proud to bring this award home.
