On August 30, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Machine Tool Co., Ltd. (MAT) (President: Keiichiro Iwasaki, Head office: Ritto City, Shiga Prefecture) conducted a science class for ten elementary school students on the theme of "Rainbow Colors from Common Mallow Flowers" at the Hidamari-no-Ie Community Center in Ritto City.
By request of Ritto City, MAT has been conducting learning support and science experiment classes that complement studies for students from elementary to high school level since 2015. The aim of these activities is to improve the academic ability of local children.
We hope that the children participating in the class will become more interested in science as a result of these experiments.
The Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Group will continue to promote activities that support the next generation while keeping close communication with local communities.
