New Delhi, Nov 20 (UNI) Leading consumer electronic goods maker Sony India today organised a Science Show here aimed at educating and entertaining fourth graders.
''As part of our CSR exercise, we are bringing the science show to India. We will take the concept to Mumbai and Bangalore as well,'' said company Managing Director Masaru Tamagawa.
Sony has already organised science shows in the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Singapore and Malaysia.
With an audience of over 7,000 students from 28 schools, renowned Japanese scientist Soichi Nishimura, entertained the crowd through simple scientific experiments using basic everyday props such as balloons, paper, strings and cardboard boxes.
''The Sony Science Show experiments make the theories that children learn in the classroom come alive and their understanding of science increases with these demonstrations,'' Mr Tamagawa added.
The company is in talks with its broadcasting arm for telecast of the show and making a series on similar lines. Mr Nishimura already hosts a show in Japan.
Sony invests approximately 7.5 per cent of its global turnover in research and development.
