APEC Cross Mentoring Research Activity

Home>Activities>APEC Cross Mentoring Research Activity

Overview

APEC Mentoring Center for the Gifted in Science (AMGS) is one of the 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 teen researchers, as mentees, with the passion but less experience in science and
professionals, as mentors, with more-experienced in various areas of ST&I. Mentors become trusted advisers and role models because they are the ones
whom the teen researchers would like to follow for their future career path. Mentors support and encourage their mentees by offering suggestions and
communicating 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 lives in Indonesia can meet the mentor in 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, the young researcher will be the expert in the field like the mentor
and look forward to find their mentees. It is AMGS’s ultimate goal to make a co-research, international conference and various mentoring activities for
the teen researchers interested in ST&I.
We would like to invite you to AMGS Cross Mentoring Research Activity(APEC CMRA)!

Purpose

Teen researchers are eager to improve 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 online space where they can meet
in the space based on IT infrastructure and carry out research activity in their field of interest. It can be rewarding to both of them, personally and professionally.
At the end, mentees contribute their research articles as a result of online mentoring research activities to APEC Youth Scientist Journal.

Mentees contribute their research articles as a result of mentoring research activities to APEC Youth Scientist Journal

    1st stage: Basic Research Course

  • 4-week course using online class
  • : To understand the structure of research process
  • : To define the aim and objective of research during CMRA

    2nd Stage: Mentoring Research Activity

  • 12(15)-week course, the course curriculum would be difference mentor by mentor
  • : To guide the research activity of mentee to foster them to be the future scientists
  • : By providing general knowledge and ideas about the field to students
