    • Abstract:
      The article discusses an innovative project called FactorISM, which aims to promote manufacturing culture and interest in manufacturing among children in the Yao city region of Osaka, Japan. The project allows children to visit local factories and observe real manufacturing work, providing them with a hands-on experience and the opportunity to take home their own produced goods. The project has attracted participants from both the local neighborhood and other regions of Japan, and has been successful in stimulating interest in manufacturing among young people. Additionally, the project has led to potential business collaborations and is aiming to expand its reach internationally, particularly in preparation for the World Exposition in Osaka in 2025. The project is managed by volunteers and is financially supported by participating companies and collaboration fees. The project welcomes anyone interested in experiencing manufacturing, regardless of gender, age, or nationality. [Extracted from the article]
