CAREFULLY DESIGNED TRIPS: creative problem-solving, self-driven challenges
Grades 6-8: Campers will design their own trip as a team while conducting a “Secrets of Seoul” research mission, visiting unique sites (traditional & modern), and complete their project mission by planning, creating their own stories, testing, and sharing their creativity and imaginative solutions through writing. They will record and make a creative vlog.
Grades 3-5: Travel Seoul, explore interesting historical sites, stories, and culture, and solve escape-room-in-a-box problems with teammates and the teacher. While traveling, our young campers will imagine Seoul 500 years in the past and 500 years in the future, creating their own historical fiction stories about Korea and themselves. They will create an innovative Podcast.
Grades 1-2: Reinvent your Seoul! Our campers will travel to some cool places in Seoul and utilize STEAM to recreate what they encountered (e.g., buildings, figures, sounds, plants, props, or signs) various homemade materials, such as boxes, tapes, foils, paper, noodles, paints, rocks, and more. They will also build their writing skills by zooming into small moments in their thinking around plot, scene descriptions, and characters. During the 8-day journey, our grades 1-2 campers will be cool bilingual explorers who can explain, write, and share in both English and Korean. **STEAM (Science, Tech, Engineering, Art, & Math)
