In the afternoon session, students engaged in a role playing activity under the theme ‘Establishing an Earth-Friendly Company’. The students worked together in small groups, sharing ideas and taking different roles to create virtual eco-friendly companies for solving environmental issues faced in daily life, such as plastic usage and air pollution.
Mr. ChewKong Lum, Chairman and CEO (acting) of Siemens Ltd. Seoul, said “Creativity and integrated thinking are must factors for fostering future talents in the era of Industrie 4.0. Siemens will continue to provide diverse experience opportunities and quality education for elementary school students in Korea, thus contributing into cultivating scientific thinking and eco-friendly perspective.”
Since 2014, about 2,200 elementary school students in the fourth to sixth grades have participated in the Siemens Green School programs organized by Siemens and Kids & Future Foundation. Meanwhile, the Siemens Green School is fully financed by the ‘Ai SaRang KiKeum’ fund, a matching grant program in which the total collected fund from employees is matched by the company.
