As one of our efforts to contribute to youth education, we have been working with the Kyoto Manufacturing Workshop courses promoted by the Kyoto City School Board since fiscal 2011.
Furthermore, the SCREEN Group supports the Science Inter-college Competition held by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology in which students of the natural sciences compete by presenting the results of their independent research.
