Indian Student visits Japan for Sakura Exchange Program

  • This occasion is a result of Arryan’s performance at the Inspire (Innovation in Science Pursuit for Inspired Research) Awards- Manak Scheme, a commencement by the Department of Science and Technology, Government of India, to appreciate and honor excellence in science among students. In a significant accomplishment, Arryan Madhu Chitkara, a standard12 student at Chitkara International School, a short time ago visited Japan to participate in the Japan-Asia Youth Exchange Programme in Science, promoted by the Sakura Exchange Programme in Science, supported by the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST).

    The Japan-Asia Youth Exchange Programme in Science is designed to encourage international scientific collaboration and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education. This program will serve as a testament to his innovative spirit, diligence in science and technology, and overall academic progress. On his Japan visit  Arryan got an opportunity to get a sight of Japan’s rich cultural heritage, progressive space technology at JAXA Tsukuba Space Center, and understanding about robotics at Cyberdyne Studio. Arryan also participated in interactive sessions about studying in Japan and received the opportunity to exhibit his creation 'Communicator Mask' at various venues.

    Sakura Science High School Programme was started as a part of the Sakura Science Exchange Programme by the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST), which invites youth from 14 different countries. The program aims to promote the development of global science and technology by encouraging excellent talents. SSHP achieves its mission by providing the participants access to special classes led by renowned scientists, paying a visit to famous Japanese universities and research institutes, cultural exchanges with Japanese high school students, embassy visits, and being a part of different experiences of Japanese culture.
