College of Analytical Chemistry, Japan was established 30 years ago. It has not only produced about 2,800 chemists and analytical chemists to various companies and organizations, but also it has held a large number of chemical festivals for secondary school, high school students and teachers for about 20 years. In the background of that, secondary school teachers have been in trouble over no time to have so many interesting experiment classes in their schools and the number of these experiments is limited.
So we would like to help them by introducing useful experiments, we have hold this course every summer vacation for 12 years. Now, this course has been very popular and teachers are always looking forward to taking part in it and exchanging chemical education information each other.
