4Dframe STEAM education tool‘s inventor, Ho Gul Park and his son and colleague, Dave Park from Seoul, South Korea are on the venue as well to coordinate the 4Dframe-related activities at the festival. Thanks to the extensive media attention, all Experience Workshop activities have been booked out within a couple of days and our colleagues will meet more than 600 South African children and their parents in the next couple of days. In the realization of the workshops, Experience Workshop gets an exclusive support from Nelson Mandela University’s Govan Mbeki Mathematics Development Centre, which is embracing the core of the South African GeoGebra community, including researchers, teachers and students on all levels of public education.
