Hands-on manufacturing classes

The city of Higashi-Osaka, where the Osaka Plant is located, is one of Japan’s leading manufacturing centers. It produces a wide range of products that support society. The city is currently promoting a “Monozukuri no Machi Higashi-Osaka” (“Higashi-Osaka: A City of Manufacturing”) program, including hands-on manufacturing classes for elementary-school students, contracted to the nonprofit Higashi-Osaka Organization for Region Innovation. We have participated in this program since it was launched in FY2002, sending employees to 10 or so schools each year to share the enjoyment of manufacturing with the students. We visited six schools in the city in 2022 and delivered lectures to a total of 431 people. We will continue to contribute to the development of future leaders.

Results of this activity to date (cumulative totals through the end of FY2022)

Student participants: 15,735 (15,194 through visiting classes, 541 through watching a video)
