Among the areas affected by the disaster, children in Fukushima Prefecture, site of the critically damaged nuclear power plant, were particularly impacted.
With outdoor activities restricted, Nissan employees wanted to help lift the spirts of the children in the area. Volunteers visited various elementary schools in the prefecture, augmenting school lessons with the “Monozukuri Caravan.”
Monozukuri Caravan is an educational program focused on hands-on learning. Children assemble Lego blocks in ways that teach the fun of creating high-quality structures through efficient teamwork.
Lecturers who normally teach at Nissan’s Oppama plant in Kanagawa Prefecture and at the Tochigi plant visited Fukushima Prefecture and implemented the program at eight elementary schools in Fukushima City and Koriyama City.
