Tokyo Electron Miyagi held an event entitled “Entertaining Science Show & Tell 2019: Let’s Open a Magic Box!” on August 22, 2019 at the Tokyo Electron Hall Miyagi.
This year was our 11th event, which was originally established with the purpose of letting the children experience the fun of science. Despite being held on the last day of the summer holidays, the audience totaled about 2,000 including elementary school children and their guardians.
Demonstrations included one showing the power of air using an air cannon, and one showing how a singer can raise the pitch of their voice by singing into a bag filled with helium gas. With other experiments conducted in the science lab, including use of liquid nitrogen and creating artificial salmon roe, the children really enjoyed themselves.
