On March 28th, the Morioka Regional Development Bureau appointed two people as ILC Lecturers who had taken courses on the ILC project. Starting in April, they will travel to elementary schools and other facilities in the area to give seminars on the ILC.
A ceremony was held at the Morioka Regional Development Bureau’s offices in Uchimaru, Morioka to give certificates to Kiyoshi Sato, an IT coordinator at the Bureau’s Department of Management and Planning, and Satomi Fujisaki, a technical worker at Iwate University’s Faculty of Science and Engineering.
Mr. Sato said, “I hope that I can convey the importance of the ILC’s research so that children can get excited and want to work there.” Ms. Fujisaki said, “I hope to talk about the ILC in a way that leads children to want to study more.”
During the 2018 fiscal year, the two took courses about the basics about the ILC, as well as visited Japan’s High Energy Accelerator Research Organization (KEK). They will go on to give lectures at mainly elementary schools.
