Institut Pasteur Korea’s educational outreach programs are open for 2016 enrollment

Pangyo, Gyeonggi, 18 Feb, 2015| In the last 8 years, Institut Pasteur Korea (IPK, CEO: Dr. Hakim Djaballah) has been able to provide middle and high school students a variety of exciting educational programs that sparks the next generations’ interest in science, and seeds the importance of infectious disease research.  IPK continues this tradition by offering new classes and programs in 2016.
Educational programs are offered year-round and are appropriately coordinated based on student’s abilities; middle school students learn about scientific theory and put their lessons into practice through hands on experimentation. High school students are matched with mentors and learn the roles and responsibilities of scientists.
Education and teaching are an important part of Dr. Louis Pasteur’s legacy and of great interest to IPK’s CEO Dr. Hakim Djaballah. “Children and scientists are alike in that they share a natural curiosity about the world around them,” said Dr. Hakim Djaballah. "We encourage the next generation to question, experiment and discover.” Since 2009, approx. 13,000 students have benefited from IPK’s educational programs that nurture the development of future global scientists and leaders.
Applications are now being accepted for enrollment in 2016 educational programs.  Explore the full list of programming administered by Institut Pasteur at or contact us at t: 031-8018-8043, e:
