APEC Mentoring Center for the Gifted in Science (AMGS) is one of long term projects in APEC-PPSTI supported by the Korean government, Ministry of Science and ICT. We would like to make a constructive relationship between students, as mentees, with the passion but less experience in science and professionals, as mentors, in experience in various areas of science. Mentors become trusted advisers and role models because they are the ones whom the students would like to follow in their future career path. Mentors can support and encourage their mentees by offering suggestions and knowledge, both general and specific. Mentors and mentees could be the one near you. However, AMGS would like to expand this relationship to APEC region to contribute and flourish the future development of this area, and the world. For example, a mentee who live in Indonesia can meet the professional at the University of Maryland, the USA, who can give him or her an in-depth knowledge and experienced advice in the field of High-temperature air combustion. Someday, he or she will be the researcher in the field like the mentor and look forward to meeting mentees. It is AMGS’s ultimate goal to make a co-research, international workshop and various mentoring activity for the young students interested in science. We would like to invite you to AMGS Cross Mentoring Research Activity(CMRA)!
Student researchers are eager to advance their knowledge and skills in their interest subjects. Similarly, scientists, as well as science educators, would like to communicate and help young students, who would like to join the same field later. So, AMGS makes an online space where they can meet in the space based on IT infrastructure and carry out research activity in their field of interests. It can be rewarding to both of them, personally and professionally.
Mentees contribute their research articles as a result of mentoring research activities to APEC Youth Scientist Journal
