About " FOR FUTURE LEADERS "
As the society, we would like to focus on spreading awareness of developmental biology to the public for future progress in developmental biology. Especially, with the revision of the government course guidelines for high schools, the units of "reproduction & development" will be moved to optional units from basic biology (i.e. compulsory units). Because of this, the importance of awareness campaign is increased as many students will lose chance to study about developmental biology before university entrance. Due to this situation, the society decided to set up the educational committee last year. The committee collected and released the beautiful digital data to the public including high school teachers and students in order to convey the appeal of developmental biology. We sincerely hope that many people will access this data and find a new interest in genesis phenomena. Especially for high school teachers, we would be extremely delighted if the data is utilized as the teaching material in a proactive way and we believe that it is useful to teach the essence of development over a short period of time. And finally, the society greatly appreciate the help of its members for offering the valuable data.
