Making a solar cooker

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 11:52

   The students in Hiroko Takeshita’s class in our SGH Research Program are now making a solar cooker, which could be used to cook food or boil water in places like Africa, where infrastructure is underdeveloped, or in disaster-stricken areas. Some students at a high school in Freiburg, Germany, have joined them in making the solar cooker, and also Mr. Kijuro Fukuju, an expert on solar cooker in Hyogo prefecture, kindly gave them some informative technical advice.
   This project is supported by Ever Green Fund of Iyo Bank. We can’t wait to see the completed solar cooker!

The 2nd-Term CLIL Politics and Economics for the 2nd -year students

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 15:34

   The 2nd-year SGH-course students made presentations on environmental issues, especially on plastic problems, and how they could solve them in the CLIL class this term. The presentations, conducted in English, were all about 2 minutes long. Every student did a great job in making their presentations, which were all well prepared and organized. Their presentations showed that the students understood their respective topics very well.
   This CLIL lesson was very unique in that the students had a chance to do research and talk about topics that have direct impacts on their lives, and also were able to try public speaking in a small and controlled environment. All the students, both making and listening to the presentations, were deeply engaged and focused. The CLIL class was a very valuable experience for all the students.

Mid-Term Reporting Session

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 10:57

   On Dec.18, Mid-Term Reporting Session took place in the school gym. The session was held for the 2nd-year SGH-course students to announce the results so far of their individual research they have been conducting since April, and also for them to show how to make a presentation as role models to the 1st-year students, who are to have their own presentation session scheduled in March next year. A report on Uganda Field Work, which was carried out in November, was also made along with it.
   All the three mid-term reports, held orally on the stage, were full of appealing points and very understandable, each of which was followed by energetic Q-A sessions. The poster session held soon afterward was also full of vigor, with a lot of students gathering around each and every one of the posters arranged by the 2nd-year SGH-course students in advance. In the poster session, the 1st-year students were seen here and there asking many questions eagerly to the 2nd-year students, who explained what they had learned so far through their research in front of their posters. The report on Uganda Field Work, conducted in English, was also substantial, with a lot of informative and interesting things to talk about. The 1st-year students must have learned how to make a presentation in English.
   Now it’s your turn, the 1st-year students! Try hard to make full use of what you learned today, and make your own presentations wonderful in March. We are sure that is how you can show your gratitude to your super teachers, the 2nd-year SGH-course students!
