    “Wonderful Saturday” (“Wonturday”) awaits you. From March, as many as 2,051 programs in culture, ecology, occupation, science, etc., will be offered every Saturday when there is no class.

    For example, if you want to enjoy various cultural arts such as family plays, musical, opera, and jazz, they are offered at the Namsan Creative Arts Center, plaza, park, etc., all-year round. Resource recovery from household waste, butterfly learning center, water recycling course, overnight zoo exploration camp, etc., are prepared around the park, resource recovery facilities, and water recycling center.

    The Seoul Museum of History is offering internship programs for middle and high school students. Children who hardly have family travel during weekends can participate in the “Happy Tour of Korea” for trips to the mountains or sea together with their families. A “Korean storytelling class for multicultural families” is also available.

    Students of Myongji University run “Happy Saturday School” to play the role of mentors helping children of alienated social groups with their homework. A total of 24 programs for the “Learning Textbook through Tour of Seoul” are being developed in storytelling format in connection with the curriculum. There are 14 programs related to social studies such as the “exploration of the precious culture of Joseon”, which enables students to experience the culture of the Joseon dynasty here and there in Seoul. In the area of creative science, there are 5 programs including “All about Global Warming.” In sports, students can experience Olympic events with “Saturlympic”. On the other hand, for those interested in fine arts, there are 2 programs including “Study of Modern Painters and Mural Painting”.

    You will be able to check all these programs easily with your cell phone and make applications using the “Wonturday Seoul” app, which will be released on March 1.

    This May, “Wonturday Seoul EXPO” will be held for a week to let teenagers personally participate in and enjoy the festival. In addition, teenagers and their parents will carry out the promotion personally in the SNS club and parents’ experience group. “Wonderful Saturday” – Isn’t it wonderful?
