Fujitsu Teaches Children to Build Solar Cars from Plastic Bottles

The company Fujitsu Ten is trying to interact with the community — in the City Office in Kobe, Hyogo Prefecture, Japan, they are now holding the 4th Annual Summer Vacation Craft Classroom.

The company Fujitsu Ten is trying to interact with the community — in the City Office in Kobe, Hyogo Prefecture, Japan, they are now holding the 4th Annual Summer Vacation Craft Classroom.

This workshop has been ongoing since 2008, which makes this year’s exhibition the fourth.  Fujitsu Ten aims to engage the community’s children; the hope is that their excitement for making crafts will endear Fujitsu Ten itself to the kids and their families.

This year’s theme is the important issue of energy conservation.  The students will learn about different methods of power generation.  They will also produce the world’s only solar car made of recyclable plastic bottles, take it outside, and watch it run.

Approximately 80 children from three of Kobe’s public elementary schools will take part in the workshop.  Fujitsu Ten recruited approximately forty of its own employees to serve as instructors from four categories including production and quality assurance.
