Over the past decade, we have given a variety of extension and visiting lectures in the regional community. The purpose of these activities is to contribute to regional education and science enlightenment related to chemistry and biology. The content of each pre-lecture and experiment is programed based on students’ ages. One extension and four visiting lectures were conducted this year. In this paper, we introduce three programs titled “Let’s know slime molds,” “Welcome to the world of super-low temperature,” and “Let’s make a Slime clock.” Questionnaire results showed that our activity was very effective at enlightening children with science knowledge.
