Finalists joined Intel ISEF 2019 Welcome Event

Today is the third day of Intel ISEF 2019, when is the day before the Interview session. In the morning, finalist interviewed by some press and explained their motivation and research. It includes Society for Science and the Public (SSP), and they wrote the Japanese Projects too. Not only the press interview but also meet their interpreters and practiced presentation to prepare for tomorrow’s interview session.

At lunchtime, all the Team Japan gather at once. Because of some preparations and procedures, they couldn’t meet face to face for a while. This brief meeting seems made finalists relaxed.

In the afternoon, a Panel Discussion, which welcomes some ISEF OB/OG and Nobel Prize Researcher, was held.

From the evening, all the Intel ISEF finalists are invited to the Major League Baseball game. The card was Pittsburg Pirates vs Arizona Diamondbacks. Finalists enjoyed the spectacular game with 4 home runs.

Tomorrow is Project Interview Day. It takes 8 hours for judging.

Team Japan arrived at Phoenix,AZ and joined pin exchange

Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (ISEF) 2019 will be held from May 12th until May 17th in Phoenix, AZ. 21 Japanese finalists arrived without facing problems. All of the finalists seem communicated enough and trusted each other.

After they arrived at Phoenix Convention Center, finalists began to set up their poster.

Then, they joined the first event, Pin Exchange, which is focused on the finalist communication. They wear Happi to appeal Japan to other country’s finalists. Not only appealing Japan, but each finalist communicated with other finalists. Some of the finalists exchanged all the pin he/she had. Because of over ten hours travel and poster setup, finalists look tired, but after the pin exchange, their face turned to satisfied one.

Each finalist contiue the poster setup, and at night, it is time to join the Opening Ceremony.
