Kyungju Shilla Elementary School, South Korea
On October 24, Hitachi High-Tech Korea Co., Ltd. held outreach science classes using a tabletop electron microscope for 100 students in grades 3, 4, 5, and 6 at Kyungju Shilla Elementary School, South Korea on the topic of "The Unseen World of Everyday Things". The children observed ants, leaves, and eggshells under an electron microscope and compared their microscopic shapes. Everyone was surprised to learn the difference in the shapes visible under the microscope compared with what we can see with the naked eye. They were also impressed to learn about how technology such as electron microscopes has led to the development of such convenient objects around us that we actually use, such as yogurt pot covers which yogurt does not stick to.
Hitachi High-Tech Korea will continue to promote science education support using tabletop electron microscopes as a focus area of the Hitachi High-Tech Group's "human development" social contribution activities.
The children look forward to learning about electron microscopes
