Session Language
"Kitchen Earth Science" aims to understand a natural phenomenon in earth and planetary sciences through analogue experiments using goods and tools in our daily life. Analogue experiments have a function of revealing the fundamental physics governing the phenomenon. At the same time, they inherently contain uncertainties, so that unexpected results are often obtained, which have a potential for surprising discoveries. These findings also provide a good opportunity for deep thinking and raise new questions to be explored. Such experiences are valuable not only for young researchers in earth and planetary sciences, but also non-experts who need a scientific thinking to live wisely. In this session, we focus on "hands-on experiments that produce diverse goals" and discuss the importance of analogue experiments with uncertainties, which causes unpredictable results: even if the experiment fails, we learn a lot of things from the failure which can lead to a great success. This time, as a special guest, we will invite Mr. Shin Iyohara, a writer with a background in earth and planetary science, to discuss the role and educational effectiveness of the "Kitchen Earth Science Experiment" featured in his new work, "Sora Wataru Kyoshitsu," which is a story in a science club of a high school evening classes. We will introduce the experiments shown in the novel and demonstrate the experiments related to the novel to provide an opportunity to exchange opinions with many people, including junior/high school students of the same age as the science club, teachers, and researchers. We will invite speakers who will report a variety of experimental research and case studies on scientific education such as introductory educational experiments for earth and planetary sciences in elementally and junior/high schools, general science education and interdisciplinary research in post-high schools, and new approaches to citizen science and outreach. We welcome all the participants who are interested in "Kitchen Earth Science" to stimulate your brain by hands-on science experiments.
