The Thai-Japanese Association School, Bangkok
The Thai-Japanese Association School, Bangkok is the world's oldest Japanese school, the successor of the Bangkok Japan Elementary School, founded in 1926. As of 2018, the school had 2631 elementary and junior-high-school students and 229 faculty members, making it the largest Japanese school in the world.
As Hitachi High-Tech Thailand's first science education activity for Thailand, in November 19–23, 2018, we gave lessons to first to third grade junior-high students at the Thai-Japanese Association School, Bangkok (a total of 512 students in 16 classes) in collaboration with COAX, a local retail partner.

The students actively raised questions and gave their opinions in every class, and we received comments like the following in the follow-up survey:
"It was so exciting." "I learned a lot of new things." "It was great to know all the ways that electron microscopes are being used in our daily lives." "I wanted to see more things."

Hitachi High-Tech Thailand plans to continue these activities to deepen interest in science among children and students in Thailand.
