The cooperation project with Kokufu Junior High School in Oiso aims to support the ardent passion of its students for drawing and painting. With the project now in its second year, the follow-up story depicts how students enhanced their capabilities. The session also covers a new approach to the STEAM education employed by elementary schools in Oiso. Their concept of “painting pictures while programming” hints at the possibility of better learning by interweaving logical thinking and creative thinking. In collaboration with Hamamatsu Gakugei High School in Hamamatsu, students are given the opportunity to express their version of “creative chaos” through a video jointly created on its own initiative. Connected Ink is open to new challenges for its own growth by learning from students’ creativity.
