Future Scientists of Korea

Future Scientists of Korea

At the four corners of the square in front of the Hogil Kim Memorial Hall are four busts - Edison, Einstein, Maxwell, and Newton - scientists and inventors of worldwide recognition, known for inventing or discovering the Electric Lamp, the Theory of Relativity, the Electronic Theory of Light, and the Law of Gravity, respectively. They are placed facing each other, as they look toward the Pursuit of Science Sculpture. Though they seem similar from a distance, upon closer inspection, they are very much distinguished from each other thanks to the excellent craftsmanship of the sculptor.

After a while, our eyes turn toward two empty, nameless podiums nearby. As we approach the empty podiums, we find the inscription, "Future Scientist of Korea(?)." Please note the question mark at the end. Yes, that's right. We have these empty, nameless podiums ready for the scientists of Korea to come - its future Nobel Prize winners. These empty podiums, along with the four busts of the aforementioned scientists are intentional symbols meant to inspire students. Students as well as visitors to POSTECH love to take photos of themselves standing behind the empty podiums, dreaming of becoming a future occupant.

POSTECH students pass by these busts and podiums every day on the way to their classrooms, the library, and dormitories, each time sparking their dreams of becoming worthy enough to be placed on the empty podium some day.
