Social contribution activities
Casio seeks to foster the next generation by providing products that children use in school and striving to build a more sustainable global society.
Supporting academic achievement with Casio products
Casio is a leading developer of scientific calculators for use in math classes. Product development is informed by in-depth communication with math teachers who are presenting their latest theories and research to international societies. By holding Global Teachers Meetings to solicit the opinions of educators from various countries, Casio is creating products that meet the needs of teachers, while supporting academic achievement for students. Casio is helping to foster the next generation, the leaders of tomorrow, through educational support based on these kinds of business activities.
Helping to improve educational environments and promote science
Casio China is promoting “My Dream Backpack,” a program to help children lacking educational opportunities due to poverty or natural disasters. It aims to help improve the educational environment for these children by donating backpacks filled with school supplies, along with Casio products that can be used in the classroom, such as calculators and electronic musical instruments.
Casio also supports the Casio Science Promotion Foundation, which helps promote Japan’s academic research. Each year, the foundation selects creative and pioneering research projects and provides them with grants. An example of a past grant that has benefitted society is the invention of efficient blue light-emitting diodes by Professor Isamu Akasaki and Professor Hiroshi Amano, who won the 2014 Nobel Prize in Physics.
