Inspiring a new generation of innovators through One Hitachi Educational Program on STEM
March 24 – 26, 2021
Recognising the increasing need to develop and nurture the next generation of innovators, Hitachi Asia, together with our partners from Hitachi High Tech, brought STEM education alive and created opportunities for local students to explore the wonders of the microscopic world through the One Hitachi Educational Program on STEM.
Held in Qifa Primary School from 24 – 26 March, each session of the STEM education activity was conducted virtually by linking 3 different locations across Japan and Singapore. While our colleagues from the Hitachi High Tech team in Japan provided the access and support to provide students remote access control to the TM4000 equipment, the local team from Hitachi High Tech Singapore and Hitachi Asia delivered the STEM lesson in school and assisted the students to virtually control the equipment for better viewing and discovery of each specimen collected.
Through these interactive and engaging hour-long sessions conducted for over 200 students, the enthusiasm, curiosity and interest levels of the students has kept the Hitachi team amazed and determined to do more for STEM education in the future. Plans of expanding this program to our regional countries are also underway to ensure that we can reach out to every child. Together as One Hitachi, we are committed to contribute towards the success of SDG Goal 4, Quality Education through powering good with STEM education.
