The aim of this project is not only to stimulate students' academic interests by setting up a visit to university labs and incubation offices but to help them broaden their career choice including studying abroad.

For lab visits, students visit several researchers at MIT and Harvard. In one visit, they prepared research topic proposal and presented in English. In their visit to Cambrige Innovation Center (CIC), they sat in an elevator pich session, and meet-up event for entreprenuers. In the evening of the 2nd day, as a finale, we set up a series of career talks by inviting 6 Japanese researchers who live in Boston.
