Inspiring the Children of Sendai
Recently Sendai National College held an exciting education event for local school children with the assistance of White Label Space. The event called "Rover Challenge" aimed to teach some science and engineering through an interesting and exciting hands-on experience.
To begin the educational event, Mr. Hakamada, CEO of White Label Space Japan, described the exploration activities of White Label Space and in particular the lunar rover being developed in Japan. The children listened curiously, before they got the chance to drive the WLS rover in a simulated obstacle course on the Moon's surface. This was very popular amongst the school students. The supervisors whispered secretly to the WLS members that they also wanted to try the game later on.
The WLS members were concerned that the kit construction would take too long but most of the children finished making their kits in time and started to play with it in their own ways.
Hopefully some of the children will go on to become space engineers in the future. Thanks very much to the college students and the teachers who helped us!
This event was covered by the largest local news paper, Kahoku Shimpo.
