Primary classes include tech focus (coding, apps, 3D printing, etc), art focus (painting, sculpturing, science-influenced art experiments, etc) and life hacks (creating and inventing through use of household items). Acting workshops and children’s theater coming soon! As well as specialized learning tracks (ie. if kids only want 3 hours of coding and tech, 3 hours of art-related learning or mix of everything)

BACKGROUND

Chopstickswide is teaming up with local governments, NGOs and private companies to bring the caliber and quality of STEM/STEAM workshops for youth that would commonly be found in the Silicon Valley area.

With the aim to prepare Daegu’s Korean and foreign youth for the 4th Industrial Revolution, we are working with education outreach programs from universities such as Stanford and Caltech, as well as Green Energy education leaders like PG&E of Northern California. We are then applying the integrity of those education influences to local industry initiatives in the Daegu area in the form of fun STEM/STEAM labs, 3D printing labs, IoT, drone technology and testing environments, VR tech, Green Energy like solar and fuel cells, robotics and coding.

Every Saturday, we are holding these workshops from 1pm-4pm at our facilities throughout Daegu, such as iACT, Daegu YMCAs new building and Daegu Art Factory. Our Korean and foreign instructors will be creating fun educational experiences that are different each weekend while we also incorporate field trips and job shadowing at local companies and NGOs related to these 21st century tech and green energy concepts we study.

Kids will also have internship opportunities through these relationships and can also receive certification as they advance their skills in our labs, which they can add to their future resumes when applying to universities or in their future job pursuits.

We can support content and programs for those in their elementary school years up to high school.

Lunch and buses will be provided to shuttle kids from the Camp Walker area and back, and also to any field trip excursions we have planned for any given Saturday. Families living in other parts of the city are welcome to take our bus from Daegu’s Nam-gu area or parents can drop off their kids at our facilities.

Also, as Korean kids will be in attendance, there will be some group structures geared to English level, but in some cases, we mix kids together according to role and particular skill levels when communication is less a priority than project objectives. We also will be conditioning kids with leadership traits and roles suited for future project management structures through the introduction of many principles found in JA (Junior Achievement) in the US, as well as work/life principles taught in Dale Carnegie training.

In the future, we will also be bringing guest lecturers from overseas who are specialized in certain tech fields or leadership training, and we will also be coordinating overseas trips to participate in STEM challenges and camps through our education alliance partners in Asia as well as the Silicon Valley area.
