Founded in 2000, celebrates its 11th anniversary this year, Saetbyeol Science Club is a group of students of Shinseong Girls’ Highschool in Jeju, Korea who have interests and talents in science.
Our significant activities are research activities, science camps, science classes.
Let us briefly describes the activities.
First, through research activities, Saetbyeol Science Club do explorations, experiments, and discussions under the theme of Gotzawal, from last year.
Second, in summer science camp in Jeju island, we have programs such as ‘scientific knowledge of the ancestors’ and ‘science in cooking.’
Finally, we have a special program of ‘science in class’ performed first in 2009. For this program, students themselves plan and prepare things to share fun activities based on scientific principles with people who hardly have that experiences.
Through these activities, we learn scientist’s mind and attitude and reach closer to science.
