3. Book Intro

 

Secret of our mind that brain science tells!
We can understand other people when we learn mind science.
How many emotions do we feel in one day? Including jealousy, anger, fear, joy, sadness, various emotions continually appear and disappear again. There are so many emotions that we cannot count one by one. Due to our fickle emotions that change frequently, my mind is unpredictable even today.
Where in my body do these many emotions arise? The answer is, our brain. Our talented brain, in charge of thoughts and memories, makes the emotion of human being. According to signals from brain, various body reactions appear by emotions. Crying, laughing, getting angry, it’s all because of the brain. When we realize which emotions arise in certain location and what happens to our brain and body when emotions arise, we can feel our emotions better.
There is no good or bad emotion. Please practice realizing, feeling and correctly expressing many emotions as much as possible from soft-hearted childhood. From understanding mind of yourself, you can learn to understand other people and can be ready to understand our world.

3. Book Intro

 

We hear a flood of news about the discovery of liquid water on Mars in 2015 or the location of a “Second Earth”, or a “Twin Earth.” We are living in an era where film “Interstellar” could become real—humans leaving polluted Earth and finding an alien planet that people can settle on. Then at this point, what should children learn and imagine about the universe? This book invites children to a vast horizon toward the space where they can meet wondrous stories about the solar system, universe, the second Earth and possible existence of aliens on it.
The sun is a star. Across the universe, there are more than 100 billion galaxies, each containing 100 billion stars. These enormous number of stars, which has 22 zeros, each have several alien planets orbiting around them, like Earth orbiting the sun. This means that in space, there are more alien planets than stars, each of which has a possibility of life, just like Earth. The rapid development of astronomy and space telescope has found over 4,000 alien planets already as of June 2019, and Korea is one of the leaders in this field with the world-renowned KMTnet (Korea Microlensing Telescope Network).
However, the extent of knowledge about space among many children still stays in the realm of UFOs or alien bodies kept in secret places. This is why a distinguished astronomist and the Director of Seodaemun Museum of Natural History decided to lay a stepping stone for children move on from this unfortunate reality. What young readers will find in this book is not green aliens with big heads and wide eyes—they will get an opportunity to explore “exobiology.” Also known as Doctor K who teaches science in a fun and interesting way for the public, the author offers a friendly guide to help children dream of the universe based on facts and science, not on superstitions or prejudices, as they are sure to enter the new era of universe. Most importantly, readers will be able to deeply understand that looking for aliens ultimately boils down to finding an answer to who we Earthlings are.

3. Book Intro

 

The destruction of Earth -- a popular topic in many science fiction movies -- has now become a real threat. Global warming is rapidly progressing and nuclear war could break out any day. Considering the tragedy of Easter Island or the extinction of the dinosaurs, mankind could also disappear from the face of the Earth.
It is assumed that an alien discovers this beautiful planet called Earth. The alien predicts the future of Earth using a future predicator to see if it is an appropriate planet to move to. That report is this book. Things that will definitely or are highly likely to happen during our lifetime are included in the book. For example, global warming, accidents at nuclear power plants, asteroid collisions, and the dark side of artificial intelligence are all happening now. It’s no exaggeration.
We desperately need a sense of awe and modesty in regards to nature. The moment mankind loses this, it will loose its future. We are dashing forward ignoring the numerous warnings that Earth is sending us. This imaginary report on the destruction of Earth was written to get people interested in the planet we are living on and to make them ponder the role of individuals together. There is a famous quote by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, the author of The Little Prince: “We do not inherit the earth from our fathers, we borrow it from our children.” We are just borrowing Earth. So we need to return it to our decedents in good condition. Reading this book will enable readers to think about what efforts are needed to return Earth in the same condition we received it.

3. Book Intro

 

Readers can imagine a water molecule so small it is invisible to the naked eye, and observe the shape of a water molecule discovered mathematically. At the end of the book, Director Yi Jeongmo uses a Q&A format to explain the things children may want to know more about when it comes to chemistry and water. In particular, he introduces the hometown of recently discovered elements, in other words the place where they originated. The home of elements that start from the Big Bang to stars, supernovas and neutron stars, clearly shows that the history of the universe lies inside the periodic table. This will make chemistry fun and guide children in their future study of chemistry before they are required to memorize the periodic table.
There are many adults who, when they think of chemistry, say they remember struggling to memorize the periodic table. It is easy to think of the periodic table as a table listing elements, key in studying chemistry, but the periodic table is the history of the birth of elements and the history of life and the universe. The reason hydrogen is the first element in the periodic table is because it was the first element that was created in the universe. Since it was the first to appear, naturally, it is the smallest and the most abundant in space. This is why we begin to study chemistry with Big History.
When children move onto higher grades and encounter the periodic table and its 118 elements as they start studying chemistry, they are likely to be intimidated or burdened. But if they begin by meeting the elements one by one from the perspective of Big History, the periodic table will feel like a beautiful map orderly displaying the history of life and the universe.

3. Book Intro

 

This book was created by Professor Jeong Jae-seung of the Department of Bio and Brain Engineering of the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology for children and teenagers. He emphasizes that brain science is the ‘science of the mind’ that can be the key to knowing oneself and understanding others. In this book, aliens from a distant unknown planet observe the daily lives of people on Earth, and then send a report on their study of people on Earth to their own planet. People on Earth are excessively concerned about their outer appearance, don’t remember what happened the day before, and are sometimes too emotional. What kind of content will the aliens include in their report? An alien named Rahood first says that people are strange animals that cannot be understood, but steadily becomes to understand people on Earth. Likewise, the author hopes children become to understand themselves and others in the process of creating a ‘Research Report on People on Earth’ together with the aliens.

A Girl Who Desires Appropriate Technology

3. Book Intro

 

Appropriate technology is a hope for the world.
Appropriate technology enables sustainable production and consumption of a local community in the context of its political, cultural, and environmental conditions, eventually contributing to improving the quality of life for humans. Key examples of appropriate technology are: relief products such as the LifeStraw; technology related to agriculture such as the Super MoneyMaker Pump, a manual water supply pump; and educational products such as the XO-1 computer of One Laptop Per Child (OLPC).
Jo Seungyeon, a 14 year-old student, heard about this difficult-to-understand-technology for the first time at a special lecture by professor Jang Suyoung at Pohang University of Science and Technology. She was shocked that only 10% of the world enjoys its technological benefits and determined to become an expert in appropriate technology for the remaining 90%. She didn’t neglect her dream. Rather she fed, watered and exercised it so that it could expand. This book includes all the joy, delight and despair she experienced during this process. It also serves as a great introduction to appropriate technology because it includes information that can only be found in professional books like the definition, necessity and precautions of appropriate technology, which are explained in “Knowledge Recharge Station,” a part of the book.
It is easy to understand the hard concept since it is written in the words and writings of a teenager and an imaginative dialogue between an imaginary character (acting the role of appropriate technology) and Seungyeon is engaging and fun. The author, a non-professional and pre-novice, explains various aspects of appropriate technology from her level of expertise. Thus, everybody should find the book straightforward to read. It can be a guide to readers unfamiliar with the concept of appropriate technology.
