Event

 

It is said that Newton got the idea for the Law of Universal Gravitation when he saw an apple fall from an apple tree in his garden.

 

People are walking, cars are driving, planes are flying, clouds are floating…..

There are many hidden forces at work behind the movement of various objects and materials in the world.

 

Let’s uncover these hidden forces in action through engaging and diverse activities and projects, building our knowledge and understanding of how our world works.

 

ニュートンは、庭にあるりんごの樹からりんごが落ちるのを見て、「万有引力の法則」のヒントを得たと言われています。

人が歩いている、車が走っている、飛行機が飛んでいる、雲が浮かんでいる…..
世の中にある様々な物体や物質の動きの裏に隠された色々な力が働いています。

魅力的で多様なアクティビティやプロジェクトを通じて、これら
の隠された力を明らかにし、私たちの世界がどのように動いているのかについて知識と理解を深めていきましょう!
