On September 6, Panasonic Vietnam organised a ceremony of receiving the Education Certificate of Merit from the Minister of Education and Training to celebrate the 8th anniversary of Panasonic Risupia Vietnam and the 45th anniversary of Vietnamese-Japanese diplomatic relations at the science centre in Hanoi invested by Panasonic Corporation.
Eight years since its grand opening, Risupia Vietnam’s contributions to creating a scientific playground for Vietnamese children has been recognised by the Ministry of Education and Training. Minister Phung Xuan Nha issued the decision of awarding the Education Certificate of Merit to Yoshiko Hamazaki, the representative of Panasonic Corporation, and the Ministerial Certificate to Risupia Vietnam.
Established in 2010 to the suggestion of former Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Thien Nhan, Risupia Vietnam is a unique facility utilising and combining Panasonic’s advanced technologies, solutions, products, and fundamental math and physic principles to create a wonderful world of science with fun exhibitions. The facility has attracted 600,000 visitors, including nearly 400,000 students, with more than 10,000 visitors a month.
Risupia Vietnam has been constantly innovating to bring advanced science and technology experiences through the showroom, where visitors can access Panasonic's cutting-edge technologies and suggestions for a modern and safe living space. Over the years, Risupia has introduced many new exhibitions. Especially, the 3D theatre—the most popular area—has been renovated for the 8th anniversary with Panasonic's latest Laser 3D projector technology with 4K class quality offering a "virtual" space for children.
“With the establishment of Risupia Vietnam, Panasonic expressed a strong commitment to develop high-quality education in Vietnam. We expect Risupia to play an important role as a cultural and educational bridge between Vietnam and Japan. Therefore, while experiencing science and technology at Risupia, children and their families can “touch” cultural aspects, such as Japanese food, music, art, and lifestyle,” said Yoshiko Hamazaki.
