TEDxYouthSeoul - Sungeun Kim - 08/14/10

Kim Sungeun considers science as a familiar, fun and valuable discipline that is actually present everywhere in our daily lives, and that which can be and should be enjoyed by everyone. Unfortunately, the public deems it only as difficult and boring as Einstein's Theory of Relativity. This type of viewpoint only widens the distance between the mass and the subject, and diminishes the society's interest in science in general. As a manager at SATE(Science Awake The Earth), a club at his school, he feels the need to act on this problem and does whatever he can to help reach a solution. He uses public-friendly medium such as magazines to promote the importance and the charm of the subject science to his peer teenagers. To satisfy a wide range of readers, the magazine covers ideas spanning from fun and easy ones such as 'why nobody makes grape milk' to more profound ones such as 'quantum mechanics portrayed through novels'. With a grant from a publishing company DooSan Dong-A, SATE publishes and distributes 2000 free copies to elementary, middle and high schools every year. A future scientist, he wishes to talk about the spirit of SATE, the spirit that will promote science in our country and bring about more young future scientists. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
