Abstract

As our society has entered the era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, interest and consideration to creative and convergent ability has been growing. Especially in the Republic of Korea, with the enactment of the Science, Mathematics and Informatics Education Promotion Law, the importance of ability to solve complex problems of the real world creatively based on computational thinking is increasing. Therefore, this study examines the background, process, and research results of the Korean science high school students who had participated in informatics-based research activities and analyzes how the problem-solving ability of the students has improved. The results of this study will be used as basic data to gain understanding and knowledge for convergence education based on informatics and computational thinking in the school field and will contribute to the direction of future researches.
