The researcher said, "There are many things that can be better understood by actually touching them.Nowadays, it is easy to implement even what is considered advanced, so I hope this technical exchange meeting will lead to new challenges for students.And I hope that they will continue to give shape to their innovative ideas," he said.

Students who participated in the technical exchange not only had hands-on experience but also asked questions to the researchers about programming languages and various IT technologies.I will definitely participate again when it is held again," she said with a twinkle in her eye.

Before the technical exchange meeting, each researcher gave a lecture to first-year students in KCG's "Special Lecture 1" class, giving an overview of each topic.

The Future Environment Lab plans to hold regular technical exchange meetings as well as various other events in the future.
