KYOCERA Provides "Eco-Lessons" to Primary School Children

June 25, 2010

Kyocera Corp. announced that its environmental protection-themed “Eco-Lessons”-part of the company’s corporate social responsibility (CSR) activities-have been provided to over 23,000 students at primary schools as of June 2010. The company plans to offer the lessons at over 250 schools in Japan and China over the coming year, an increase of 1.5 times the number of the previous year.

The lessons, which are taught by specially trained Kyocera Group employees, incorporate original experimentation kits and toys using solar cells, a fun quiz and other interactive activities so that students can enjoy the learning experience. Kyocera has been offering the lessons in order to enhance children's awareness of environmental issues and interest in alternative energy, and to foster an eco-friendly perspective in the next generation.
