Dr. Reiko Oda, Research Director of the University of Bordeaux and IROAST Visiting Professor, and researchers of the University of Bordeaux visited to greet Director Takashima with their host professor, Prof. Makoto Takafuji and Assistant Professor Yutaka Kuwahara. After the IROAST introduction by Director Takashima, we shared views about internships and other young researcher exchanges. Afterward, they toured the Memorial Museum of the Fifth High School and the Chemical Laboratory of the Fifth High School. They mused on the Japanese educational scene more than 100 years ago. They were surprised at the small size of the desks of those days and impressed by the ingenuity of the draft chamber (fume hood) in the chemistry laboratory.
