Why South Korea is an Important Visit for STEM Students
South Korea is one of the leading countries in advanced technology and engineering. From coding to electronics, South Korea is paving the way for new and exciting opportunities for STEM students. With ongoing exhibitions of the latest technology in the Samsung D’light and coding classes at the W-Coding Centre, South Korea offers invaluable experiences to inspire and intrigue STEM students.
This incredible exhibition space allows students to dip into what the future holds. Dedicated to the latest Samsung technologies, Samsung D’light offers a chance for STEM students to ‘live their tomorrow’. Not only are there original and engaging exhibitions, but there are also ‘future classrooms’ with cutting-edge interactive educational tools, sure to inspire all students.
This coding bootcamp was set up to expand the tech scene in Asia. Offering all sorts of courses from nightly part-time classes, to a full time 12 week all-you-need-to-know course. Not only does it educate but it also helps to launch start-ups and offers consultancy for existing companies. Coding is an imperative skill for STEM students and a visit to the W-Coding Centre in the Gangnam district will be an insightful experience.
Gwacheon National Science Museum
A visit to the world’s largest and most well-equipped science museums is a must for all STEM students. With interactive exhibitions on astronomical space, natural history, future imagination and advanced technology, this museum is like none other. This visit will give an insight into the extent of South Korea’s advancing technologies and science.
Internet and Telecom Providers
South Korea boasts the world’s fastest average data transfer rate for internet access by end users. We provide the opportunity for students to visit the offices of one of Seoul’s Internet and Telecom Providers, and ask as many questions as they like in an intimate Q&A to help them understand the advances South Korea is making. In 1995 the country decided on a 10-year plan to build a nationwide super-fast internet infrastructure, allowing new tech companies to take advantage, hence why they are now the leading country in internet speed!
The media poles on Ubiquitous Street in the Gangnam District are essentially 12-metre tall iPhones for the public to use. They are interactive screens where members of the public can play games, search maps, read the news, check public transport and a lot more. South Korea use their advanced tech to experiment in fun and exciting ways, and the Media Poles are an example of this innovation.
Those are just a few examples of why a visit to South Korea is an invaluable experience for STEM students.
