About Us

We like science… a lot!


So at Tsukuba Science we want to make science more accessible for everyone to discover. ?You’ll find stories on a range of science here, from basic concepts to the latest research, and also introducing some of the people who do science.

This is not a comprehensive coverage of science, or even a deliberately structured one. We choose the topics we do simply because we are interested in them, and because we hope that you’ll find them fascinating too.

Tsukuba Science is maintained by SCOUT, a student science communication group at the University of Tsukuba, Japan, and all articles are written by students and staff of the university
