Introducing the basics of programming and algorithmic thinking to children at an early stage improves their problem solving ability and teaches them one of the most important languages in the world today.

Glico wants to promote the healthy growth and development of children, which is why we have created GLICODE, a fun and educational mobile app that allows kids as young as 6 to learn the basics of programming using Glico products.

These products are the building blocks for a fun and delicious introduction to coding and algorithmic thinking.

GLICODE has even been integrated into school curriculums across the country.

Elementary school teachers are using the app as a tool in the classroom to teach the basics of programming thanks to support from public programs like MIC "Popularization of Programming education for young segment".

What is the “Popularization of Programming education for young segment” public program?
This educational program designed to support and incentivise the integration of programming education into elementary school curriculums. With the support of teachers and local ministries we aim to make computer science an integral part of a childs education.
