Japanese Students Conduct Science Experiments At UIS
Students from Springfield's sister city in Japan conducted science experiments at UIS this week. The boys from Ashikaga Boys High School won a grant from the Japanese government to come to the U.S.
Working with the UIS Department of Ecology, they took samples from the field and brought them back into the lab to test their chemical makeup. The boys said that the work they did here is different from what they're used to at home.
"This experiment is so very difficult," Kazuki Handa, Ashikaga Boys High School said, "but we enjoy it."
The students also had a chance to visit the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum and do some shopping.
They'll return to Japan Thursday.
