We organize a ‘work in turn for one another’ (Pumaci in Korean) program for mothers and their children who want to access science and mathematics easily. Four mothers and their children belong to a group, that is a learning community, and do scientific experiments once a week. Representatives of groups visit the WISE center once a month to learn experiments of science and math for their group. Each group posts their work of experiment on the WISE-science mom website and they learn much from each other. WISE center gives them feedbacks. Adult women can take part in e- learning system using high technology freely for learning and teaching their children. Through this program, women understand science and technology better and would guide their children into the related fields better.

We organize a ‘work in turn for one another’ (Pumaci in Korean) program for mothers and their children who want to access science and mathematics easily. Four mothers and their children belong to a group, that is a learning community, and do scientific experiments once a week. Representatives of groups visit the WISE center once a month to learn experiments of science and math for their group. Each group posts their work of experiment on the WISE-science mom website and they learn much from each other. WISE center gives them feedbacks. Adult women can take part in e- learning system using high technology freely for learning and teaching their children.
