Welcome to GTE!
Thank you for your interest in GTE among the many active learning programs available. Hiromu Soga and Sachi Noto, our representatives, work for NEDO (New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization) as project catalyzers. In the process of providing start-up support to young researchers and professors, we realized that entrepreneurship education needs to start at a young age.

First, we offered courses at KO University's Reading Graduate College for four years. But we found that learning from middle and high school students was more effective, so we decided to offer the GTE program to middle and high school students as we do today. We will continue to strive to promote entrepreneurship education (entre) that leads to active learning and social implementation Welcome to GTE!
