As a manufacturing company, in order to communicate the work contents of engineers who are supporting manufacturing and convey a sense of the job’s attraction, Murata is holding lectures on demand for elementary and junior high school students.
By introducing the mechanisms that allow Murata’s original bicycle-riding robot, Murata Boy, and unicycle-riding robot, Murata Girl, to maintain their balance, and by giving a glimpse into the atmosphere of the development stage, we not only stimulate the children’s intellectual curiosity in the fields of science and technology but also teach them that they cannot give up even after experiencing many failures.
At our domestic and overseas sites, moreover, by holding electronics workshops and environmental study sessions that have the children develop their interest in environmental preservation, we are expressing our desire to be a company that gives dreams and hopes to children who will forge the future. In this way, Murata is continuing to carry out activities to nurture children.
The Murata Science Foundation was established in February 1985, to contribute to development of scientific study through academic promotion. The Foundation provides financial aid for research that contributes to the improvement and development of science and technology mainly in the electronics field, and for research in the humanities and social sciences that contributes to the resolution of problems that accompany globalization. It also encourages international exchange among researchers.
In fiscal 2016, the Murata Science Foundation provided a total of ¥260 million in aid, comprising 119 research project grants, 38 study group grants, and 98 cases of overseas dispatch assistance.
