The Japanese Association of Intellectuals will hold a “Sea Quiz Event” on November 11 (Friday) at Uchinada Town Shirahodai, where you can enjoy learning about the sea, such as the culture, history, creatures in the sea, and environmental problems. It was held at an elementary school. This event is a program where you can learn about the sea through lecture parts (study) and quiz rounds (three-choice questions, quick push). The 66 6th grade students who participated listened to the lecture with a serious look, and it was very moving to see the quizzes, which they had never touched in their lives, while pressing the full-fledged fast-push button while throbbing.
This event is part of the “Nippon Foundation ‘Sea and Japan Project'” that connects people through the sea in order to pass on the rich and beautiful sea to the next generation.

・ Number of participants: Uchinada Municipal Shirahodai Elementary School 6th graders (66 people)
・ Venue: 2-168 Shirahodai, Uchinada-cho, Kahoku-gun, Ishikawa Prefecture First of all, study at lecture time!
During the lecture time, we will learn difficult matters such as ocean issues, which are global issues, and culture and history related to the ocean. The sea is right next to the school, and the Uchinada sand dunes, which are among the largest in Japan, spread out. For the children of Shirahodai Elementary School, the sea is a familiar presence. However, there were many children who seemed to be unaware of things related to the global marine environment and the oceans of various parts of Japan.
Finally, the quiz preliminaries and the final round
After the lecture time of the sea is over, it is a qualifying round first. Challenge the three-choice questions by making use of what you have learned and the knowledge you have gained so far. Listen carefully to the problem, and while discussing it in a circle as a team, we will derive the answer. If you make a mistake, you will be eliminated, but that is the world of competition. There were some teams who dropped out after the first question, but instead of being discouraged, they listened quietly to the moderator and cheered on the remaining winners. By the time the five teams to advance to the final were decided, the children were heating up. It became a fierce battle. And the final round is a quick push quiz using full-fledged fast push buttons. The five teams that survived the qualifying round will take the stage to the applause of their classmates.
A wide variety of problems related to the sea and what they learned in the lecture part are presented, and the children put their hands on the buttons with a serious expression and concentrate on the problems read aloud. The children who knew the answer all pressed the button all at once, and it was heated. Many teams gave the correct answer, and each time, the audience cheered. Any team could have won, but the team who approached the problem calmly won.
After the class, students and teachers will be interviewed
Students: “It was fun to think and do the quiz with everyone on the team.” I also want to tell
Teacher in charge: “I thought it was a good event where the children could proactively get to know the ocean through a quiz format. It seems that the children gained a sense of fulfillment and
accomplishment that they can’t get in regular classes.”
