MHI Holds Science and Technology Special Event Class for Girls to Teach the Mechanism of Vibration Damping
On December 26, 2016, MHI held a science and technology special event class for girls to teach the mechanism of vibration control at the Research & Innovation Center Takasago District (Arai-machi, Takasago City, Hyogo). On the day, 22 girls and 5 boys from junior high school first grader to high school second grader participated in the event.
The children made comments such as, "I learned something new and enjoyed increasing my knowledge." "I thought of science as being difficult, but it was very interesting." "Hearing from the female engineers working in the field made me want to do my best." We hope that this event has inspired all the children to take up an interest in science and making things, and that it will be a catalyst for thinking about their future.
