Students Are Using Technology to Tackle the COVID-19 Pandemic
Five students of SUNY Korea, majoring in Computer Science have teamed up with nineteen Incheon Yeonsu Elementary school students to address COVID-19 through technology. Working in five separate groups, each with one undergraduate playing the leading role, students are creating smart applications to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Both online and offline meeting methods will be utilized for the project.
The opening ceremony of the joint project was held at the auditorium of Yeonsu Elementary school on November 6th. Each team will go through the process that includes learning coding, seeking advice from experts, conducting experiments, and verifying efficiency of their applications.
Prior to the event, Johng-Ihl Lee, the professor of Department of Technology and Society at SUNY Korea delivered a special lecture on “STEAM Education as the Solution for Overcoming COVID-19” to the students and parents.
The finalized applications are expected to be shared with the public by the end of December. Mi Ja Park, the principal of Yeonsu Elementary school anticipates the project will promote a new form of inclusive education during this unprecedented time, empowering students to play active roles in solving global issues.
