Panasonic has been conducting various communication activities as a corporate pavilion through exhibitions and offline events.
Due to the unprecedented circumstances around the world today, people’s daily lives and values have been significantly impacted. Panasonic will host an online event called “The power to create the future,” on Sunday, May 31. An event dedicated to children, who we believe have the ability to become “change makers” and bring a positive impact to society, to create a better world.
The theme of the event is “STEAM education*”, a very important element required for future education as the world is rapidly changing. During the event, STEAM professionals will conduct a workshop which will give the participants an opportunity to think and understand more about STEAM in their daily lives. Olympian Katie Ledecky will also join the event to introduce the Dive Into STEM Education, Powered by Panasonic program.
Katie Ledecky’s Dive Into STEM Education Powered by Panasonic is an interactive educational program created to inspire students to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
The students participating in the event will be divided into different groups where they will conduct a series of interviews with our guests to learn more about STEAM, and then will make a presentation about what they have learned. At the end of the event, participants will hear from Katie, who is actively working on educational support activities for younger generations.
PC Tokyo aims to proactively support the education program of younger generations by providing fresh contents such as videos of online events available on the pavilion’s website.
Message from Katie Ledecky towards the event
“I am thrilled to join Panasonic Center Tokyo to promote STEM education to a group of Japanese students on May 31st.
All are welcome to join our training workshop. Hope to see you soon.”
*STEAM education is an educational method which was proposed by adding Art to “STEM education”; a method to learn about Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics comprehensively.
STEAM education was introduced in the United States to contribute to the development of younger generations to inspire them to pursue diverse career fields. This method is also attracting a lot of attention in Japan in recent years.
