||73 3rd grade students of elementary school, 5 teachers and others
||Shirakawa Olympus greeted students from Kumakura Elementary School in Nishigo village, Nishi-Shirakawa, Fukushima. In addition to giving the students a factory tour, Olympus held an “Endoscope Class for Kids” for them. The students toured the plant and observed the process by which the medical devices and tools that make up the medical endoscopic system are made, and then had a classroom session where they learned about the history and functions of the endoscope, and were given a chance to operate an endoscope and treatment tools themselves. Their interest in and understanding of medicine grew stronger as they had fun throughout the visit, as evidenced by the positive responses of the students, who told us at the end of the day that they had lots of fun.
