卒業研究発表会【Student Seminars】

   We had our student seminars yesterday, for the first time. I said "first time" because the students presented based on their graduate research and they are my first group of students who are going to graduate upcoming spring. They are actually enrolling their masters degrees so it is not "good-bye" seminars for us but at least they finished their "undergraduate" experiments anyway. 
   As I mentioned in this blog before, we are such a small group thus we try to invite many other students/staffs from outside of our lab when we have seminars. This time, students from other laboratories and staffs from other faculties kindly attended our seminars. I really appreciate for their support for my students. Thank you. 
   Three 4th year students presented their results, importantly, in English. Well they practiced really hard over the last few days thus they did good jobs. An American scientist who attended the seminars told us that their English was good so at least their English was understood by a native speaker.
   By the way, I really get nervous when my students do presentations in front of others, although I normally do not get nervous when I am presenting something. After the seminars, I was so tired and even today I do not feel 100%. Well, I am very happy for my students.
