Article 7 Japan

On Thursday, March 28th, We had a special visit from Japan. These students arrived from the Munakta High School. The school is in the Fukuoka Prefecture, not too far from Meizen High School, another school from Japan visited Orlando Science in previous years.

These visiting students were here to learn more about our robotics

, PLTW Engineering and PLTW Biomedical Science special programs. In exchange, these students also presented their own culture to our school. Our students really stepped up and brought forth an amazing act of hospitality. Student Government Association organized a warm welcome ceremony and put the visit program together. Some of our students gave their presentation in Japanese and this gesture surprised the visitors. Both Orlando Science and Munakta High students had a gift exchange ceremony which helped each school’s students to enjoy having a cultural souvenirs exchange. Our students took the time to learn a few conversational pieces and scientific terminology to get their presentation across. It allowed the Japanese students feel more comfortable when they presented their projects in English. The students really did make a connection. Student Ambassadors gave them a tour around the campus to show what Orlando Science High is offering.
