■ Comments from the person in charge of “Mechanism Kids”

Until now, our company (Gakken) has continued to make efforts to foster children’s “curiosity” and create content that conveys “the joy of learning.” The same is true in the cutting-edge field of “programming education.” Through this award, I am very pleased that the value of the course that puts the “motivation” of children learning programming first was recognized.
