A new kids’ makerspace in Korea – helping turn play into innovation
The Kids Maker Studio will offer kids — and their parents – a wide range of workshops throughout the year. Upcoming sessions include everything from creating a stethoscope that can measure and convert electric resistance of various objects to sound, to making a model of a friend’s face using black strip resistor and LED lights.
Over the past year, we have had an incredible opportunity to be involved in major initiatives that support Korea’s insatiable spirit for creativity and innovation. Through our partnership with the National Hangeul Museum, we opened an interactive space for kids to learn about the Korean alphabet. Earlier this year, we opened Campus Seoul, our first community space for startups in Asia. And next Spring, as mentioned, we will open the 2,000 square meter outdoor Science Playground at the Gwacheon National Science Museum.We are so excited to see what the kids who come through these spaces create.
