KUSCO News 2017 East-Coastal Science Education Symposium

The objective of the proposed symposium was to help promote the Science (Mathematics and Physics) education of young generations (4th - 12th graders) in the Eastern Carolina regions, establish the network among regional scientists residing in US and Korea and provide the platform for collaboration by introducing research and teaching activities in US and Korea. The speakers discussed about effective education of Mathematics and Physics in US and Korea. The symposium was organized jointly by Eastern Carolina Chapter (ECC) of KSEA and Korean Faculty Interest Group (KFIG) established in East Carolina University. ECC/KFIG nominated 5 speakers (4 Korean-American speakers and 1 speaker with non-Korean heritage). The symposium was advertised in the local Korean community. The membership of ECC spans the majority of Korean scientists in related fields in US and Korea. The symposium was a central stage where scientists, both professional and young students, from the two countries meet and exchange their thoughts and information. Because the proposed symposium was to be held during the ECC annual meeting, a large number of Korean-American professionals and students in S&T attended the symposium and the banquet. The meeting room was full of students and parents. The meeting has sucessfully ended with very productive outcomes including more interests in science and education to the local students and parents expecting more enrollement to National Math and Science Competition (NMSC) 2017.
