The DNP Educational Program
At DNP, our vision for the development of tomorrow's workforce is that each person will have unique skills that they contribute to a concerted effort to ensure the sustainable development of society. Our unique DNP Educational Program is designed to make that vision a reality by stimulating children's intellectual curiosity and allowing them to discover that learning can be fun.
The Wonder of Color
This lesson teaches children about the mysteries of how the printing process reproduces colors. Because the lesson is centered on observation and experiments, children learn through hands-on experience, which makes the DNP Educational Program ideal for linking to lessons on fundamental scientific subjects such as wildlife and how the human body works.
The program started in 2012, with lessons in three schools: one in Kyoto and one each in the Tokyo wards of Shinagawa and Shinjuku. The major products and services of local DNP operations were used as subject matter, and children learned how printing technology plays a role in many of the most immediate facets of our daily lives.
"The Wonder of Color" is part of DNP's ten-year action plan for intensive, planned initiatives between April 1, 2005 and March 31, 2015 to encourage the next generation in accordance with the Act on Advancement of Measures to Support Raising Next- Generation Children. We plan to make a real contribution to childcare and childrearing in local communities by holding the DNP Educational Program nationwide by the DNP Educational Program nationwide by 2015, with particular focus on the communities that host DNP facilities.
