The TOMODACHI Toshiba Science & Technology Leadership Academy

The TOMODACHI Toshiba Science & Technology Leadership Academy is an annual one-week, cross-cultural Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) exchange and leadership program for 16 high school students and eight teachers from Japan and the U.S. In August, program participants from both countries will work together in Tokyo to develop a disaster-resilient, smart community of the future. With counsel from Toshiba engineers and a visit to the Toshiba Science Museum and the Smart Community building, the students and teachers will work in teams to develop proposed solutions to these problems using learning experiences that are central to Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and the engineering design process.
