Sony inspires future innovators
SONY continues to push the boundaries by coming out with products that lead its class in sound and image quality.
With over seven decades of experience and expertise, the brand now shares its curiosity for innovation by inspiring kids through workshops under the Sony Science Program.
Done in partnership with Save the Children, Sony Philippines recently had students from Fourth Estate Elementary School and Paranaque Elementary School participate in an experiential workshop. The kids learned about the technology behind headphones and were tasked to make their own using recycled plastic bottles and milk cartons.
In line with Sony’s global CSR campaign, the workshops aim to give kids hands-on experience and teach them about the power of science. The goal is to spark their curiosity and shape their minds to become future innovators.
The Sony Science Program is also hinged on the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals. Through its educational workshops, the brand is also helping teach kids more about sustainable production and climate change—things that will greatly affect their future.
“Sony has always believed that early science education is crucial for children to develop innovative thinking that they will need as the future leaders of our society,” says Nobuyoshi Otake, Managing Director of Sony Philippines. “Through our partnership with Save the Children and our workshops, we wish to share our knowledge and expertise to the next generation and inspire them to be the innovators of tomorrow.
Sony Philippines is planning to have more workshops like these in the future. Upcoming sessions will also be using Sony developed educational tools like MESH, which has app-based modules for prototyping things and building projects for the Internet of Things and KOOV, an all-in-one kit used to teach coding, robotics, and design.
