Chugai has been hosting social contribution and educational activities for kids since 2008 to help foster children's interest in science by giving them opportunities to have fun with science. Continuing on from last year's program, the theme this summer is 'genes.' Students will observe cells taken from onions and their own oral mucosa to learn the difference between plant and animal cells. They will also extract DNA from bananas. Chugai employees will join the laboratory class as volunteer instructors and help convey the fun of science to the children.
In past years, the laboratory classes were organized for elementary and junior high school students, but in 2013 the program was revamped and expanded to offer classes for high school students as well. This year, too, Chugai is planning to hold a variety of science laboratory classes specifically designed for each age group.
Chugai's mission is to 'dedicate itself to add exceptional value through the creation of innovative medical products and services for the benefit of the medical community and human health around the world.' Based on this philosophy, Chugai has been carrying out a wide range of activities from the perspective of contributing to fostering and training the future generation of leaders in science and technology. We are continuously dedicated to actively undertaking the education of the next generation on health-related issues as part of our social contribution activities.
