Wednesday morning the Swedish and Japanese students met up at Klara Norra Gymnasium were a typical Swedish breakfast was served for the participants to enjoy. The discussions were of traditions and so a lot about food and different meals in the two countries.
After breakfast David Andersson of The Federation of Young Scientists held an inspiring and exciting science show at the school with everything from electricity to liquid nitrogen.

For lunch the Swedish hosts took the Japanese guests out to eat at Restaurant Smultron (meaning raspberry) to further show the Swedish lunching traditions.
When lunch was finished everyone headed of to Karolinska Institutet to take part of an exhibition about Cancer held by the first year medical students. The participants got to learn many different aspects of the disease, the prevalence, the types, the symptoms and the treatments and all in a very creative way. At the exhibition we were all greeted by Professors Matti Nikkola and Carolina Hagberg who presented the school and also showed us around.

After the exhibition the students were invited to Professor Christian Brobergers laboratory where he held a presentation and lecture of his research in neuroscience. This was a very exciting part and meny questions were asked so we continued to the café of the school and also had a swedish fika with the Professor to learn more.

Time passed by quickly and when fika was over the Japanese students got to follow their Swedish host students home to spend the night at their home. The students took their guests on some various activities and they all got to experience Swedish culture very up close.
