With the launch of the “Light Pioneer” program in 2016, we have rolled out three initiatives, namely “High-tech Adventure,” “Digital Interactive Classroom,” and “Future Light Camp,” and conducted these events at rural schools in Miaoli County, in hopes of bridging the digital gap and overcoming educational inequality between urban and rural areas alongside our customers and local universities with our core products and expertise to balance resources for coding education in rural areas, initiate efforts to introduce coding to students, teach children how to think and reason, and enhance their logical thinking skills.
Moreover, in order to practice Goal 1-No Poverty, Goal 4-Quality Education, and Goal 17-Partnerships for the Goals in the UN 17 SDGs, "Light Pioneer" has been implemented in 2016. Through the following trilogy, we hope every student shares the same education quality and advantages of technology despite his or her wealth, social status or geographical location.

In order to narrow the digital divide, Coretronic have Invited rural students and teachers to visit Coretronic's Hsinchu Headquarter and Chunan Office since 2016. We do hope through High-tech Adventure, students and teachers can acquire latest information and knowledge about advanced technology and related products. What's more, by experiencing high-tech products, teachers may create new teaching approaches to improve students' learning motivation and efficiency.
Coretronic aims to spend 10 years building 53 Digital Interactive Classrooms equipped with awarded products- Laser Ultra-wide Touch System and Ultra-short-throw Laser Projector for all rural schools in Miaoli County.
Coretronic's Firefly Volunteer Team and IM-specific volunteer team from National United University will hold Future Light Camp in rural schools together. We will make good use of all devices in the digital interactive classroom to teach rural students basic/advanced computer programming, film editing, Google VR cardboard assembly, drone training, and mBot courses.
In 2022, computer programming has been included in the 2019 Curriculum Structure. To balance the learning resources and enable students in rural areas to learn computer programming, we have collaborated with National Yangming Chao Tung University and Papacode to launch Future Light Camp 2.0. All camp volunteers must undergo 20-hour training courses before the camp, so that they can serve as camp course instructors or assistants.
