OVERVIEW

We live in a generation of globalization and information changes in a blink of an eye. Developing student soft skills is the main focus in 21st-century education. Among all, STEM Education (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) not only enables students to acquire interdisciplinary knowledge, but also enhances their observation, problem-solving skills, creativity and teamwork.

Japan has long been a leader in technology on a global scale, and Tokyo is a metropolitan city with a sophisticated and comprehensive STEM education system compared to the rest of Asia. Our STEM experience tour brought students onto the front seats in the technology cities of Japan: Tokyo and Tsukuba. Tokyo is the most populous metropolitan city in Japan while Tsukuba is known as a well-planned science city.
