On August 3, 2021, JCCS gave a fun class at the event “Let’s learn SDGs in the community! – one day summer science project” ~ held at the Toyota Corolla Tomakomai showroom

An environmental event on the theme of SDGs and decarbonization was held in Tomakomai City, Hokkaido, and 19 local elementary school students (5th and 6th graders) participated.

On the day of the event, various programs, such as a class on the SDGs, an experiment to measure the amount of carbon dioxide emitted by cars, and an experiment to run a fan with bicycle power generation, were held. JCCS gave a fun class on the theme “Global Warming and CCS” with animations and quizzes.

At the end of the event, participants pretended to be reporters and made newspapers that would be useful for their summer science project.

The participants gave various comments such as being surprised to know about the amount of carbon dioxide emitted from a car, and that CCS was very interesting because it was easy to understand how it traps carbon dioxide.

On the day of the event, as a countermeasure against Covid-19, all staff members received antigen tests, and temperature measurements, wearing of masks, disinfection, and ventilation were carried out.
