A workshop combined science with the concept of“ Kawaii (a Japanese word meaning“ cute”)” were investigated in the view point of the promotion of science literacy for female junior high school students. “Kawaii” is a positive emotion relating to the social motivation of watching for and staying with preferable objects, especially women are found to be more positive and sensitive to it. Junior high school girls who had attended the “Kawaii” science workshop answered that they wanted to talk to others about “Kawaii” science experiments more than conventional science experiments of regular class. The combination of cute and science would be a good way of science communication for girls.
