ASIMO travelled to Swindon, England, last week as the headline act in a celebration of the success of Honda (UK)’s acclaimed ‘School of Dreams’ programme.
Now entering its fourth year, School of Dreams has been developed by Honda (UK) and a team of independent education experts, visiting UK schools with a series of free two-day thinking skills workshops for students and educators.
To date School of Dreams workshops have been carried out in more than 100 schools, reaching 3,500 9-13 year old students and 1,000 educators. The workshops help young people to understand the importance of pursuing their dreams, and teaches skills and strategies to help turn their ambitions into reality.
The celebrations took place at the Swindon Academy – a specialist Academy school which is supported by Honda Motor Europe, lying on the doorstep of Honda’s UK manufacturing plant. Students and educators who have participated in the programme joined ASIMO on the stage to share their experiences with peers and colleagues; recognising shared successes and encouraging new schools to get involved in the next phase.
ASIMO is the ‘face’ of School of Dreams, acting as the perfect example of Honda’s own ‘Power of Dreams’ philosophy and the company’s dedication to innovation. At the event ASIMO entertained the gathered students and educators with a breathtaking display of its latest cutting edge abilities, including dancing, climbing stairs and running in a circle.
