South Korean students visit Bridgeport aquaculture program

At the Aquaculture School, the visitors focused on fitting in and exchanging ideas with their American counterparts.

In addition to the safety training with the school's seniors and juniors who will participate in the state's "V-Notch" lobster restoration project, the Korean students helped Aquaculture students work on projects involving solar-powered boats, and figuring out ways to farm lobsters and tilapia.

"I hope they learn that we're fun-loving and we have to do hard work at this school and are really into environmental things," said Sydney Williams, 17, an Aquaculture senior from Bridgeport.

Williams said the Korean students seem to have a good sense of humor.

"It's kind of hard when you don't speak the language, but you can tell by their facial expressions and gestures and things like that," she said.

Gyuhun Kim, a Wando teacher, has visited the Aquaculture School before. He said in Korea, teachers are more strict, but student learning here seems more practical
