  • Values of STS

    Explore five values that STS drives.

    • 01

      People First

      People first value means looking at the phenomenon and the subject, in view of people undergoing the uncomfortable condition, understanding what affected by the condition. Various solutions, such as products, services, systems and policies, are all for the people. It is important to create a solution in the form best suited to the recipient, the form that should NOT influence the solution’s shape.
    • 02

      Open mind

      Value of Open mind pursues all possibilities to resolve issues, looks at phenomena in a variety of angles, and discovers the core of the real problem. In order to find the core of the problem, questions are constantly thrown to others who response with their thoughts.
    • 03

      Collaboration

      As one issue affects different many people, solving one problem needs different people from various fields. For a wonderful world of imagination the whole team, demonstrating competence of all team members with different characteristics is the more powerful solution, the solution that can be born when they integrate members’ various forces together.
    • 04

      Experimentalism

      Because one problems may have multiple causes and various resolutions, finding the answers at once is not easy. All courses consist of assumptions (if ...) and experiments (let’s try it once!). We must continue to try. Apart from the conviction, "This solution is right.”, we can find a better solution when applying and developing, in one belief that “we wantto solve this problem“.
    • 05

      We are all innovators.

      Someone special is not the only one who can change the world. Don’t worry in questions like “Does my ability can help this issue?” or “What can be done by me, a ordinary person”. You are already ready to innovate society when you start to see, listen to, and talk about the life’s big and small problems.
