On July 8, 2014, Panasonic Corporation hosted a remote classroom about batteries for 80 eighth-year students from two classes at Bijeshwori Gyan Mandir Sainik Mahavidyalaya in Nepal. Panasonic Members served as lecturers, with translation provided by a teacher from Chiyoda Elementary School in Kawachi-Nagano, Osaka, which helped provide the link with the Nepalese school.

Chiyoda Elementary School had previously held other exchange classes with the Nepalese school using video conferencing systems. This particular lesson was designed to teach the Nepalese students the joys of science through a Handmade Battery Class, and was conducted with the help of the Kawachi-Nagano Educational Media Center.
The day began with an explanation of the various types of batteries, general knowledge about batteries and their properties, and an overview of Panasonic. The children then experienced building their own dry batteries by hand with a special kit. Time was also allocated for a Q&A session which saw the Nepalese students ask many different questions about batteries and Panasonic. This demonstrated their great interest in batteries, Japan, and Panasonic.
The classroom was brought to a close with a commemorative photograph showing the children proudly holding their finished batteries. One commented, "I am very grateful for such a good experience," with another saying, "This was all extremely useful and I hope we get another chance to learn with you again."
The lesson at Bijeshwori Gyan Mandir Sainik Mahavidyalaya proved a great success, and Panasonic now plans to host further remote classrooms with other Nepalese schools in the future.
