Chalk, one of the student clubs at KAIST, shares knowledge by providing free online classes to teenage students in Korea via Internet.


Chalk, a KAIST student club which donates their educational knowledge, received an award from the Education Minister of the Republic of Korea at the 2nd Donation for Education Award held on December 16th, 2013 at the Plaza Hotel in Seoul.   


The Donation for Eduation Award aims to find and reward corporations, organizations, and individuals, which have actively contributed to growing the dreams and talents of students, as well as revitalizing the culture of donation for education. It has been awarded by the Ministry of Education since 2012 to promote the awareness and participation of students for education.  


Chalk provides free online video lectures on www.playchalk.com and runs a mentoring-based education program. The club has been recognized for offering online courses, math and science classes in particular, to teenage students who are from socially and economically less privileged backgrounds.  


Chalk was founded by five KAIST students in 2011. Their ultimate goal is to create a society where students can fully enjoy the benefits of education, regardless of their economic conditions. About 60 undergraduate students currently participate in the club, with more than 5,000 students attending over 160 lectures without any cost.
