We held this event hoping that if we provide opportunities to the young generation ranging from elementary students of 4, 5, and 6 grades to college students for accessing the latest planetarium technologies and activities of high school astronomy departments, we can get the students interested in science and technology so that they will go on to become science and technology personnel in the future to support Japan. This event will also kindle their interest in the fields of intellectual property rights such as patents to protect science and technology. The master of ceremony was Hanako Ohtowa, an announcer at tys (Television Yamaguchi Broadcasting Systems Co., Ltd.).
