Our first Global Communication and Science workshop

A HUGE thank you to Keisuke Tabata and his BRILLIANT students at Kobe Shinwa Women’s University, who took part in our first Global Communication and Science workshop on solar eclipses (below).


(Just for info, that’s not a green tablecloth – it’s about to become spacetime. Also, that’s not a mandarin orange – it’s a celestial body that is about to pass near the sun… This is all connected to a discussion about Arthur Eddington’s 1919 experiment, where he used a total eclipse to prove Einstein’s general theory of relativity.)

Later this month, the Kobe Shinwa students will be collaborating remotely with students at Mahajanga University in Madagascar, starting with an online read-through of the science-fiction movie “Europa Report”.

Our Global Communication and Science workshops are sponsored by Garuda Indoneisa.
