GM Korea sponsored a program to help children from low-income families build creative thinking skills.
As we work to build a pipeline of STEM talent, we understand that learning doesn’t stop when the school year ends. That’s the idea behind a summer creative camp for children of low-income families, sponsored by the GM Korea Employee Foundation. The camp included experiential programs to promote creative and logical thinking, such as lectures by gifted education specialists, a group project constructing three-dimensional figures by solving mathematics and science tasks, and a “Brain Story” session designed to develop mathematical thinking and creative problem-solving skills. Participants were 100 second- and third-graders from elementary schools in Seoul, Incheon and Gyeonggi-do.
