Wolfskuhle高校にてホームステイ先のパートナーたちと対面。すぐに意気投合。その後、エッセン市庁舎を訪問。副市長、在デュッセルドルフ日本国総領事河原様と対面し、歓迎のお言葉をいただきました。午後からは、Junior Universityの先生によるワークショップ。ドイツ生まれの星形プログラミング教育コンピュータCalliope(カリオペ)を使用した授業でした。このプログラミングを活用し、それぞれの学校や街でSDGsな生活を送るための方策について話し合いました。

Students met their German host partners and became friends with each other quickly. We visited the city hall and greeted the Consul General Setsuko Kawahara and the deputy mayor. In the afternoon, we joined the workshop by the professor at Junior University. We worked on the programming lesson with Calliope, which was invented for German education.

 In the early morning, we hold an online meeting with students in Japan. We enjoyed German breakfast, then finally presented our study in Japan and some aspects of Japanese culture with some authentic materials. For the farewell ceremony, the orchestra played us, and some Japanese students joined them, too. Thank you for your hospitality. We learned more than we expected from you and your country.
