Intel in Your Community

Environmental science and technology into the Intel community
The Intel Walk into Community program was launched in 2004. As a leader in technology innovation, Intel has walked into the community schools of Sichuan and Shanghai, teaching primary school students how to use a computer, and helping primary and middle school students to draw pictures to show their technological creations, to design pictures about environmental protection with Photoshop, and to build community models. During the event, Intel volunteers were praised by the organizer and parents of the students for their energy and patience.

Intel Adolescents Science and Technology Contest

The program aims to promote Science, Mathematics and technology education, and encourage the next generation to engage in scientific creation with an innovation spirit – the spirit that makes life better.
The program is hosted by China Association for Science and Technology (CAST) and Ministry of Education (MOE) with different themes every year. We are delighted to see the limitless creativity of Chinese adolescents during this contest.

In Junior Achievement (JA) volunteer activities, JA China partners with enterprises to recruit volunteers, develop business and economics-based curriculum for students from grade school to university, care for the enlightening and educating of students on business and economics, and provide them with more opportunities to interact with people working in different sectors and industries. Job Shadow Day, an annual event held by JA, provides students an up-close look at what a “real job” is, shows how the skills they learn in school are implemented in the workplace, and helps them to understand the connection between learning and their future career. In 2008, Intel has worked with JA to launch JA Job Shadow Day, Migrant Workers’ Children School, Career Go, etc.
