The first “Science Workshop” was held on 15th December, 2001.
Turning Everyday Wonder into Scientific Adventure
Leave a Nest was established in December 2001, by 15 graduate students in science and engineering. The fifteen researchers, who were eggs of researchers, decided to continue career as researchers throughout their life and launched Leave a Nest with the dreams of “Keep contributing to society by producing essential output and to create unique laboratory to changing the world”. These dreams are the foundation of Leave a Nest's corporate vision “Advancing Science and Technology for Global Happiness”, and we continue to live up to this philosophy.
And one more. At the time of establishing company, we came up with the concept of “Turning Everyday Wonder into Scientific Adventure” together with our dreams. We cannot be curious unless we feel a wonderful sense of “why” and “what” about anything in our daily lives. And wee believe that the starting point as a researcher is to change the curiosity into the interests of studying and doing something, rather than merely asking whether or not to do.
Science Workshop for children
At the time of Leave a Nest establishment, Japan society has just started to face problem of “children losing interests in science”. Then, we as scientists who know more about scientific attractiveness than anyone else, can meet and tell children about the concept of “Turning Everyday Wonder into Scientific Adventure.” This is how we started the first business, the Science Workshop.
We as eggs of researchers try to share interests of cutting-edge science in an easy-to-understand manner to children. If children can get excited, they will certainly become the next-generation researchers. Continuing to sow seeds in the future will ultimately lead to “Advancing Science and Technology for Global Happiness”…. Science Workshop, which is still our core business, began in this way.
Subsequently, while Leave a Nest will expand its business under the keywords of “cutting edge,” the fundamental philosophy has not changed at all from the time of company establishment.
Keep in mind Turning Everyday Wonder into Scientific Adventure.
Creating a small research laboratory that continues to generate the necessary output for the world.
Therefore, we will find and bring our colleagues who can work with us in research together in the future.
And as a result, we will achieve “Advancing Science and Technology for Global Happiness.”
Going forward, Leave a Nest will continue to grow.
