Hitachi High-Tech's science outreach program
The Hitachi High-Tech Group has identified important issues to engage with in order to use its own businesses to address social issues based on the SDGs, a set of common rules and targets for the international community in the 21st century. One of these issues is "Contributing to the Sustained Development of Science and Industry." Hitachi High-Tech's core technologies of Observation, Measurement, and Analysis, which we have cultivated through our business operations, as well as our products that support the promotion of science education, contribute to developing the next generation of scientific researchers.
The Hitachi High-Tech Group develops and sells cutting-edge tabletop electron microscopes that are compact while enabling sample observation and analysis with high magnification and precision. By using these to conduct lessons at elementary and junior high schools, along with lending them to science museums and exhibitions, the Hitachi High-Tech Group has offered schoolchildren the experience of being able to observe everyday items at the micro scale, and has provided science outreach programs to get more children interested in science since 2005.
These activities are not just limited to Japan, with lessons being carried and equipment lent to educational institutions all over the world. They are now conducted in 28 countries around the world, with more than 240,000 children and students taking part(2). As part of the 2017 "Year of Japan in Ukraine(3)" and the 2018 "Year of Japan in Russia(4)", lessons and science events featuring tabletop electron microscopes were held for local students in commemoration. Opportunities for online science education support activities have increased since 2020, and online lessons were also offered as part of this commemorative exchange program.
In the future, Hitachi High-Tech will continue to work on science outreach programs with various related organizations, contributing to solving educational issues and creating social and environmental value in order to develop the next generation of research and development personnel.
