Oral presentation entry deadline 8/30 Poster presentation entry deadline 9/30

Science Castle 2024, a conference for junior high and high school students, started in 2012 as a "gateway to success for researchers" and is now in its 13th year! Every year, more than 1,000 junior and senior high school students with a passion for research participate from all over Japan and exchange their thoughts on research.

 The conference also provides an opportunity for the next generation to take the next step forward in their research through discussions that transcend generations and fields, with the participation of university and corporate researchers, graduate students, venture companies, and others.

 Anyway, I love research! I want people to know how interesting my research is! I want to have friends to do research with! I want to talk with researchers from universities and companies! We are looking forward to receiving entries from such junior and senior high school student researchers.
