The Korean-American Scientists and Engineers Association said Tuesday that it will host a series of online meetings where high school students can interact with renowned scientists and engineers, starting April 29.

The “KSEA science concert” is free, but only those who register in advance at can attend.

Philip Kim, professor of physics at Harvard University, will speak about graphene, known as the “material of dreams,” April 29. The next day Luke P. Lee, professor of medicine at Harvard, will discuss nanobiotechnology and how it can be used to assess the health status of humanity and the Earth.

On May 5, Daniel Lee, professor of electrical and computer engineering at Cornell Tech and executive vice president at Samsung Research, will speak about artificial intelligence and robotics.

Esther Yang, former senior director at Abbott Laboratories, which produces COVID-19 testing kits, will speak about the inner workings of the medical industry May 7.

On May 12, Young-kee Kim, professor of physics at the University of Chicago and former deputy director of the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, will speak about particle physics.

High school students will have the opportunity to listen to their stories and directly interact with them online.

“We expect the concert to help high school students choose their majors in the field of science and technology and build a vision as scientists and engineers,” KSEA President Oh Jun-seok said.
