2012 Exhibitions - Vol. 3
Get behind the technology - what, why and how?
Exhibition Period: July 24, 2012 - October 21, 2012
This exhibition was planned primarily for upper elementary school age and middle school students. It aimed to show young people how the Yamaha products they see around them in daily life actually work and what mechanisms they employ to function as they do. Using actual products and models along with simple experiments, the students were encouraged to look, touch and experience for themselves the way the products work.
A wide variety of Yamaha products in 12 categories, including a MotoGP race machine, outboard motors, PAS electrically power assisted bicycles, electric wheelchairs, golf cars, generators and more were exhibited and explained.
