The 2017 International Science Camp will be held at UNIST from May 24th to June 2nd, inviting a national team, comprised of 20 gifted student representatives from Central Asia, such as Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan.
This is a weeklong intensive problem solving camp, designed to help students prepare for the future science related endeavors.
The primary purpose of this event is to train younger students in Olympiad-level problem solving and broaden their science, technology, engineering, mathematical (STEM) horizons. This event is not only a training camp but also a competition in and of itself. In addition to regularly scheduled courses and team projects, participants will also have a chance to experience traditional Korean culture.
“UNIST has been leading the education of Asian gifted and talented students in Central Asia,” says Professor Hyung Joon Cho, Dean of Admissions and Student Affairs at UNIST. “We hope to work actively with Kazakhstan, a country rich in natural resources on student exchanges and cooperation.”
