Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 14:12

   On December 12th, we had an Interim Presentation of 2016. This presentation is for 2nd grade SG course students to show the progress of their research, and also for 1st grade students who just started research on this autumn, to know what kind of goal they must reach until the last presentation at March. Also this is a good chance for 1st grade students to see what they will do in SG course, so that they can decide their next years’ curriculum. Other than presentations from 2nd grade, we had presentation of reporting Germany field work and Shikoku SGH Meeting. The presentation of 2nd grade was done only 2 at a power point presentation, and the rest was presented by posters. In this poster session, 1st grade students were asking well, which leads to a good recognition for them to be in SG course.

Kochi Cultural Field Work

Filed under: - sgh-admin @ 14:07

   Same as a week before, we had a field work at Kochi again on December 10th and 11th! This time, the 1st grade students from Research project class of Prof. Okamoto visited several places to watch and feel the food culture of the prefecture.
   On the first day, students visited Community Market Yusuhara to learn about wild vegetables. There were many unfamiliar vegetables, which reminded them of the different food culture even though Kochi is next to Ehime. Then, they took time to have discussion with Kochi city officers. Discussion was taken at a village called Nii (pronounces like “knee”), and officers explained about the agriculture of this village. This village has huge area of deserted cultivated land, because of growing farm retirement. Deserted cultivated land has many problems, so the village is now cropping Japanese sweet potatoes and searching for the way to sell or use them. Also officers talked about the emergency tower to protect people from Tsunami, since this village was right next to Pacific Ocean. Since it was their first time to see such tower, students also realized a sufficiency of crisis consciousness.
   On 11th, students first visited morning market. Students and teachers were amazed at it so bustling. Then, they visited antenna shop of two villages, Baji and Tsuno. These shops show how Kochi is putting weight and effort on the regional development. At last was making Baumkuchen at Green Park Hodono, using eggs of Kochi’s regional chicken, Tosa-Jiro.
   We greatly appreciate Prof. Okamoto (Ehime University) and Prof. Tanaka (Kochi University) about lots of cooperation through these two Kochi field work, planning, making appointments, and advertising students. Students must deepen their knowledge and will express them out at the research.
