#5. From Committees

(1) Committee for Diversity Management and Talent Pool

Diversity Committee’s activity:
Summer school for girls in junior and senior high schools (The
Natsugaku) 2021

[Date] 8-9 August 2021
[Venue] Online
[Host] STEM Career Path Project for Girls (GSTEM-CPP)
[Official supporter]
JpGU (from 2021) and other scientific and engineering organizations
[Summary] The Natsugaku is an annual event and an opportunity for
female junior and senior high school students to “experience science
and technology”, “meet with active female scientists and engineers,
and “think about your own future”. More than 110 students from
various regions across Japan were attracted to participate in this
year’s “remote” Natsugaku. The JpGU contributed by two sets of
remote experiments, namely “Analysis of planetary exploration data”
and “Interaction between life and the Earth recorded in calcareous
sands in the lagoonal basin”, and a poster and video for introducing
research and education in planetary and earth sciences, which were
all well received. We have the impression that the number of students
interested in planetary and earth science is gradually increasing and
that it would be worth considering some follow-ups, such as proactively
providing prospective students with information on the JpGU annual
meeting (or other related academic conferences) and/or open-day of

(2) Japan Earth Science Olympiad Committee

The result of 14th International Earth Science Olympiad (On line ).

Date 8/25/2021-8/30/2021 34 Countries and areas, 185 students
Japan team result:
Excellent (Gold); 1student
Very Good (Silver); 2 students
Good (Bronze); 1 student

* This year, only Excellent, Very Good, and Good awards were given
due to the online competition.
There were no medals awarded this year. However, each recognition
is equivalent to the conventional gold, silver, and bronze medals.
