In October, “Out of KidZania in Fukushima” was held at Fukushima Robot Test Field, in Japan’s Fukushima prefecture.
The Associated General Contractors of Fukushima set up an area introducing “The work of the construction industry”. This area allowed visitors to try three types of work experience: surveying, as well as riding on and (through use of a simulator) controlling heavy machinery. Over the two days, 83 people tried out these experiences. The “surveying” work used PENTAX’s Total Station and levels.
We will be happy if this experience encourages children to take an interest in construction and surveying.
