I would describe this weXplore as part family road trip and part school museum visit, as we spent our time traveling by bus, ferry, and foot to and from museums, energy parks and power plants. We went to 3 different cities and many small towns, often stopping at either 7-11, Family Mart, or Lawson’s for lunch in order to spend more time engaging with experts, tour guides, and information booklets....

The second quest revolves instead around the pursuance of growth through developing our...
