The 3rd KSEA Chicagoland Mentoring Program for High School Students, 2020-2021

고등학생들이 학교 커리큘럼 과정 이외의 STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) 과 관련된 연구 프로젝트에 참여할 수 있는 기회는 상당히 제한되어 있습니다. 실제 전공분야에 대한 경험없이 대학 진학시 전공을 선택해야하는 모순적인 상황을 극복하는데 도움이 되고자 저희 재미과학기술자협회 시카고 지부에서 2018년 부터 미주 한인 고등학생들을 위한 멘토 프로그램을 제공하고 있습니다. 저희 지부에는 국립연구소 및 대학, 회사 등 다양한 분야에 있는 전문가들이 멘토로서 활동하고 계십니다. 이전 2번의 멘토링 프로그램을 무사히 마치고, 올해 제3회 멘토프로그램을 위한 새로운 고등학교 학생을 모집하오니 아래 RSVP 링크를 통하여 많은 신청 부탁 드립니다. 신청서 마감일은 2020년 10월 9일 입니다. 올해는 코로라 바이러스 전염병으로 인하여, 모든 관련 프로그램은 온라인으로 진행될 예정입니다. 많은 성원 부탁 드립니다.

Unfortunately, many of high school students do not have enough chance to learn STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) related projects before University. Such limited opportunities make difficult to determine their career paths in a proper way. From this point of view, since 2018, KSEA Chicagoland (Korean-American Scientist and Engineers Association) has been providing a mentoring program designated for Korean high school student in US. This mentoring program is aiming for developing high school student’s understanding on STEM fields and utilizing their abilities to find and solve a problem. Our mentors have a variety of expertise and long-term experience on the STEM fields. In the previous programs, twenty high school students successfully completed projects and properly delivered their final reports. We are now accepting applications for the 3rd 2020-2021 KSEA Chicagoland Mentoring program for High School students. Please refer the materials via the below links to learn more about the program and mentors. Due to Covid-19 pandemic, all 2020-2021 programs will be carried out via on on-line platform.
