The doors of the institute opened again for public on May 11, 2013

On May 11th, 2013, the doors of the institute opened again for public. This year, a total number of 403 visitors attended to see the overview of the most current activities at IPSR. Small experiments, many group displays and Quiz Rally were prepared for them to test their knowledge, and small presents were awaiting those who completed the Quiz with correct answers.

We sincerely thank every visitor for taking your time and coming here, and we hope to see you again next year! Public interest and opinions are the important fuel for our research, and inspiration for novel thought and research that truly meets the public needs in Japan.

And here is our small Photo Gallery to remember this year’s event…
