On Thursday, October 8th, the students took part in a tour of the Ehime Prefectural Science Museum. They were able to learn about the work and the role of the museum. Also, they were able to deepen their understanding of the professions as a curator and motivate themselves to choose and realize their future carreer path.
Last year, we conducted a company tour, but the infectious disease has not subsided this year, so the host company was not available. Therefore, we asked the Prefectural Science Museum for a tour.
On Wednesday, September 30th, the secondyear students of the nanoparticle group visited Niihama National College of Technology. They had measurements using an X-ray diffractometer. They could confirm that the powder produced by our school's constant temperature dryer is ferrite. The group is researching magnetic nanoparticles that generate in an alternating magnetic field.
