Giving back to the community through a fun afternoon of interactive team building. As part of Hamamatsu Corp's 50th year anniversary celebration, current and retired employees were divided into groups and provided materials to build solar and recycled cars. The activities ended with a team car race. All solar cars were donated to Bridgewater-Raritan Middle School to encourage children to develop STEM skills.
