SEISA schools has deepen the study about space in the daily classes. Through this collaboration, we will further develop the education through empathic understanding, based on the importance of life by utilizing space as a material for students. As part of this effort, we nurture the children to have the curiosity, adventurous spirit, and craftsmanship that are the philosophy of space education. We will also focus on the development of faculty members who can conduct space education, through conducting the development and assessment of space education materials, and so on, in cooperation with JAXA Space Educaton Center.
SEISA's “Education Through Empathic Understanding” through various educational activities such as "learning about the connection between life and death," "learning from familiar things," and "learning together with friends," are in line with the objectives of the JAXA Space Education Center, which aims to use space as a material to convey the importance of life by utilizing space as a material. Space School, a program offered by JAXA Space Education Center and KU-MA (Children, Space and Future Association), aims to nurture "curiosity" and "adventurous spirit" and to learn "spirit of mastery". The program emphasizes the importance of thinking about and exploring the science of mysterious events in daily life, using everyday materials and tools that are available around them. Besides, it is also connected to deepening family ties by conducting experiments and crafts on the theme at home.
