GGC Math-Science Program in Thailand

About the Program

Study how math and chemistry relates to key environmental issues facing Thailand, the United States, and even South Korea. On this summer trip, you will explore the relationship between culture, science, and industry as you visit chemistry labs and research facilities and take local tours of cultural and historical sites in such places as Chiang Mai, Bangkok, and Seoul, South Korea.

The program is designed in a way that you will get the most of both your math and science experience while at the same time experiencing up close the amazing cultures of Thailand and South Korea.

There will be four major site visits of 3 days or more each including: Seoul, South Korea; Chiang Mai, Krabi, and Bangkok, Thailand. At each site visit, the students will be exposed to the animal and plant bio-diversity and will also learn how to collect data and use statistical or calculus methods to interpret it.

Also, students will work with their Thai or Korean student counterparts for maximum educational and cultural exposure.

The trips will span from visits of Incheon and Seoul on the Pacific, to Krabi on the Indian Ocean, to the mountains of Chiang Mai, at the border of the Golden Triangle between Thailand, Laos, and Myanmar, in the lands of the ancient Lana.
