Faculty, Administration Office, and the Student Council of College of Biotechnology and Bioengineering hold Sungkyun Bio-Tech Jamboree every year. This event is an academic seminar where students share ideas which are helpful in real life, from academic knowledge they learned from the lectures.
Operational purposes of the Jamboree are to A) help students widen their academic perspective, B) develop competences for making creative ideas, C) encourage College of Biotechnology and Bioengineering students to exchange academic knowledge and D) promote their self-esteem. Therefore, we can expect students to raise ability to research various fields of Biotechnology.
Under these purposes, the College of Biotechnology and Bioengineering held the 7th Sungkyun Bio-Tech Jamboree, on November 10, 2016.
|Subject||Suggest Bio-Technological ways for developing beauty (美)|
A. Recruitment: June. 13th ( Mon.) ~ July. 31th (Sun)
B. Preliminary: September. 30th (Fri)
C. Final: November. 30th (Wed)
Undergraduate Students (2-6 students per team)
(College of Biotechnology and Bioengineering students should be included)
A. 1st: 1,000,000Won
B. 2nd: 600,000Won
C. 3rd: 400,000Won
Winning the preliminary round, a total 6 teams participated in the final, and they showed their own unlimited abilities. The 6 themes were as follows:
- A hair removal ointment using the hair loss treatment principle
- A scar patch using the technology of 3D printing
- An automatic skin make up machine using the technology of color correcting
- A personal room that tells one's emoticon
- Hair transplanting using bio-planting
- Weight correction using LPL
Among these competitive teams, 3 teams were awarded.
1st. 니모(毛)를 찾아서
This team aimed at the sadness of person who has lost their own beauty, and then focused on hair loss. Ryu Seonggeon (Genetic Engineering, 11), the team leader of '니모(毛)를 찾아서', said, "We wanted to give back beauty to people who lost their self-confidence (of beauty) because of hair loss." and added that although it was hard and a complex procedure, it was happy to be with nice teammates from June.
2nd. 조하영과 아이들
This team considered effective way of hair removal, and then thought of a way to apply Propecia that control DHT and cause substance of hair loss, to hair removal.
Lastly, this team designed an automatic skin make up machine suitable for user's skin, using the technology of color correcting.
Many teams presented creative ideas and developed their abilities. For example, scientific and logical thought, and at the same time, it was a good opportunity for students to think about what is the most important purpose of technology.
Moreover, it was a good opportunity for students who didn't major in relevant fields, because the host summarized content of presentation when each team ended their presentation. Thus, it could help audiences understand more easily.
In conclusion, the College of Biotechnology and Bioengineering selects creative and interesting topics for Bio-tech Jamboree, so many students wish to participate and gain better results every year. Students can enjoy a diverse experience in addition to studying, and it can help foster creative, intelligent experts. Thus, we hope international students' participate in future Bio-tech Jamborees.
