JAXA Space Education Center serves as a secretariat of the Space Education Working Group (SEWG) of the Asia-Pacific Regional Space Agency Forum (APRSAF). Now the largest space conference in the Asia-Pacific, APRSAF draws attendees from public, private, academic, and non- governmental sectors from more than 40 countries and regions.
The Space Education Center serves as co-chair of the APRSAF SEWG and assists in organizing the water rocket event and the themed poster contest. The annual pair of events gives primary, middle, and high school students a rare opportunity to shine on the international stage. The APRSAF Space Education Seminar and the Educator Workshop provide valuable opportunities for teachers and educators to gather and trade experiences, insights and achievements from their own space education activities. The aim of these educator programs is to enhance the quality of teaching, nurturing the kind of next-generation talent capable of true innovation.
