On March 16 and 17 MHI conducted science classes at the Konan Elementary School near the Shinagawa Head Office. The theme of the classes, which were targeted at approximately 200 third graders, was "Let's Try Seeing Power That's Invisible."
After participating, many children expressed how much they enjoyed the experience. "Making a vegetable move by an invisible force was really interesting - like magic!" one marveled. "I enjoyed doing so many experiments we normally don't get a chance to do," enthused another. "I really learned a lot of things I didn't know before," said another. MHI hopes the classes will induce young people to have greater interest in science.
The MHI Group plans to continue offering science classes like these in the future, as a way of nurturing children's interest in science and technology.
