Abstract
Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) has been committed to the educational activities using the Japanese Experiment Module (JEM/KIBO) on the International Space Station (ISS) for young generations, including Try-Zero G and Space Seeds programs for Japanese and Asian students. JAXA has also held the Students' Parabolic Flight Experiment programs for years, with successful accomplishment of the original objectives. In addition, JAXA has implemented the pilot projects and the studies on literal and social sciences using JEM, which we found have educational aspects. We are expecting to extend these results to the public for raising awareness and inspiring the next generations.
