ICReDD participated in The Hokkaido Branch of The Chemical Society of Japan’s “Dream Chemistry 21” program on August 3rd-4th, 2023, in which high school students from around Hokkaido were paired up with a research group in Hokkaido University for a hands-on lab experience.
Three research groups at ICReDD hosted a total of 15 students. On the first day, students attended a special lecture and then their mentors took them to their respective labs. On the second day, students completed hands-on experiments in small groups. Each group explored a different topic, with students at ICReDD learning about computational chemistry, mechanochemistry, or hydrogel materials.
