About 100 graduates from the Multicultural Mother Schools and their families visited the KAIST campus on October 29 at the invitation of the Hanmaeum Education Corps of KAIST. The Hanmanum Education Corps is a volunteering organization composed of KAIST faculty and students. Many retired KAIST faculties are also members of the corps. Byong Kyu Choi, an Emeritus Professor from the Department of Industrial and Systems Engineering, is the director of the corps and has been leading the event since 2015.
With the support of a KAIST educational volunteering organization called SEED(Social Education Embracing Diversity), this year’s event offered various activities including a treasure hunt and convergent science programs. Participants had the opportunity to experience KAIST’s educational environment and enjoyed the perfect autumn weather during outdoor activities with student volunteers.
Children enjoyed making illumination-music stickers with the KAIST students, even though it was tough to learn at first.
While the children engaged themselves in the science program, parents visited the chrysanthemum fair and some of KAIST’s cafeterias.
Hanmaeum Education Corps opened the Multicultural Mother Schools to support multicultural mothers so that they can have more interest in and help their children more with their education. Since its establishment in 2015, the Multicultural Mother Schools have been expanding throughout the country.
The corporation hopes that visiting a renowned university will encourage children from multicultural families to study hard in addition to offering self-enrichment opportunities through career exploration and science activities.
One of the most challenging issues for game players looks to be resolved soon with the introduction of a zero-latency gaming environment. A KAIST team developed a technology that helps game players maintain zero-latency performance. The new technology transforms the shapes of game design according to the amount of latency. Latency in human-computer interactions is often caused by various factors related to the environment and performance of the devices, networks, and data processing. The2019-06-11
