On June 23, the 4th Science Café was held by members of the Graduate School of Science at a cafeteria near the university.
For this Science Cafe event, we invited Prof. Adam Cronin, and graduates to talk about their amazing research in the Ogasawara islands. They explained us about the impacts of introduced invasive species on plant and animal biodiversity of the Ogasawara islands. Speakers delivered their talk in English and Japanese, and received many questions and comments from the public. About 20 people attended the event, mostly students from Tokyo Metropolitan University, but also some local people that are interested in science. After the talk, people enjoyed the unique food menu prepared by chef John McEvoy, and the homemade traditional Spanish Sangria, while chatting with speakers and other attendees. Overall, it was a very fun event!
