Sony Hong Kong collaborated with a local magazine PC Market "eKids" to organize the "Science and Environmental Protection – I Can Make It" Workshops for children, aiming to foster their interest for science knowledge, inspire their creativity and raise their awareness of environmental protection.
The first workshop held on 5 July at the La Salle Primary School was attended by 60 students with their parents. Sony specially invited Hong Kong's well-known 'young inventor', Mr. Stark Chan, to share how science impacted his growth and to present the knowledge of power supply and environmental conservation., students were impressed by Stark's sharing and proactively asked questions about science in addition to making their LED torchlights.
The second workshop took place on 19 July at the Youth Square was attended by 30 children with parents. They made D-cell batteries and learned how to minimize the impact of batteries on environment.
Lastly, the third workshop held on 6 Dec at the Heep Woh Primary School was attended by more than 40 students with parents. They were very excited to light up their own torchlights and our colleague also taught them to capture light-painting photos by using the torchlight.
Totally 130 children joining these three Sony Science Program workshops also made donations to the Make-a-Wish Hong Kong to help children with life-threatening illness realize their dreams, making this CSR initiative more meaningful.
