나노과학자의 꿈을 실은 나노트럭! 충청남도에 오다
COXEM provides educational support to regional highschool students in South Korea through the "Nano Truck project". Under this project, COXEM's tabletop electron microscopes are loaded in a specially modified semi-trailer truck. Starting from Jeonbuk, South Korea, the truck made stops at numerous highschools including Ancheon highschool in Jeonbuk, Mangyeong Girl's highschool in Gimje, Jeil highschool in Jeju, Seogwipo highschool, Jangheung highschool in Jeonnam, and Yeong-gwang highschool in Yeongju.
The project introduced high school students to nanotechnology and the microscopic world by allowing the students to observe samples with the scanning electron microscope. According to Mr. Kang from Yeong-gwang highschool, "It was interesting to relate the nanoworld to our daily lives. Nano seemed so hard, but with COXEM's scanning electron microscope, now it's simple and fun."
The company's efforts are to promote science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education and foster talented individuals.
