    F1 in Schools World Finals

    In October 2016, F1 in Schools held their World Finals competition in Austin, TX. F1 in Schools is the only global multi-disciplinary challenge in which teams of students aged 9 to 19 years old deploy CAD/CAM software to collaborate, analyze, manufacture, test, and then race miniature compressed air powered balsa wood F1 cars. The challenge inspires students to use IT to learn about physics, aerodynamics, design, and financial strategy, and apply them in a practical, imaginative, competitive and exciting way.

    This year Tokyo Electron America has become an F1 sponsor and partner for the US competition and had our 3 employees participate as judges for the various categories of competition at the World Finals.
    Our Austin office also invited F1 in Schools students to the campus for a presentation on who we are and what we mean for their future technology as well as a tour of the training building to see examples of our equipment. We had students from all over the world tour our facility and ask questions about the Semiconductor market.

    SEMI High Tech U

    In October 2016, Tokyo Electron America -Austin campus hosted over 30 students for SEMI High Tech U. Students joined from high schools all around the area for a 3-day "high-tech career exploration program." We have sponsored and partnered with SEMI High Tech U for many years, but this was the first time we hosted the event on one of its campuses in America.
    Students of SEMI High Tech U participate in fun, hands-on learning, related to math and science. Our employees were invited to instruct each different lesson in the program. On day 1 of the 3-day course, students kicked off the program learning about career pathways and education. In this exercise, students took a quick personality test to determine the type of worker they may be in a real-world scenario. Once grouped with other students who scored similarly, the teams would research college majors, jobs and career paths that were more common for people of their same personality. The students also received a presentation on how semiconductor technology relates to everyday technology and future technology, followed by a tour of the training building to see examples of our products. In that same afternoon, students simulated a microchip layering process, took medieval catapult technology to learn about quality, and later learned how to apply chemistry by turning on lightbulbs using salt water.
    On day 2 of the program, students visited Texas State University-San Marcos where real university professors talked to them about the importance of continuing their education and what steps to take to make sure they stay on their own career path. The students took a tour of the campus and learned more about the process of applying for, and attending, a university and got a real-life look at what being a college student could look like. Additionally, a glass-bottom-boat tour was arranged for the students where they got a quick biology and geography lecture.
    The final day was filled with collaboration and communication skills as the students were given their biggest group project of the week, having to think critically and problem solve to propose ways of using technology to improve environmental issues in third-world countries. The students were responsible for researching their given regions and use their presentation skills to explain how their groups proposed to solve the issues. Later the students were really put to the test when they conducted mock-interviews with TEL employee volunteers after learning more about interview preparation and techniques.
    At the graduation ceremony two students were voted by their peers as class ambassadors and were awarded a $1,000.00 scholarship from us.

    Partnerships for Children

    Every year, Tokyo Electron US Headquarters in Austin, TX, adopts the Christmas wish lists of children who have been displaced from their homes for safety as a part of the Partnerships for Children- Holiday Wishes program. TEL employees sign up to receive a wish list of a child and bring those gifts into the office to be tagged and delivered to the distribution center, where gifts for over 5,000 other children are sorted and prepared for Christmas morning.
    Seeing all the gifts together in the headquarters lobby on their way to child in need, is a great experience. It really reminds us of what the holiday season is all about.

    Malta 5k race

    In September 2016, Tokyo Electron America joined Global Foundries in sponsoring the Malta 5k race to fulfill our corporate social responsibility philosophy in the community. 100% of the proceeds were donated to the agencies in the community; such as VET HELP, Malta Volunteer Fire Dept., Round Lake Fire Dept. and Malta’s Emergency First Responders. 
    As the Title Sponsor, Global Foundries provided over 50 staff for the event, had over 200 runners and designed the course round Fab8. Employees from our Albany office and Malta office came together to build a team of over 23 people, including family members, to run and/or raise funds for these organizations. 
    This was a unique opportunity to not only work together with community leaders to support a great cause, but to also network with those in the industry.  As race date approached, our team not only build up endurance while training, but strengthened business relationships with counter parts from several companies with whom we work with at Global Foundries and the Albany Nanotech site.
