[Creativity] Taiwan Strikes 42 Gold Medals at Seoul Invention Show (Chinese Version)

CNA, China Times E-paper & udn.com (2011/12/04) Seoul International Invention Fair (SIIF) 2011 rounded off the event on December 4 evening. Taiwan delegation won 2 secondary prizes, 5 special prizes, 42 gold medals, 67 silver medals and 32 bronze medals in total, making it the biggest winner team in the fair.

The delegation leader Tsung-tai CHEN told the press, nearly 32 countries and 700 pieces of invention works joined SIIF 2011; Taiwan delegation presented 173 pieces of works and won 2 secondary prizes, 5 special prizes, 42 gold, 67 silver and 32 bronze medals. CHEN also encouraged the other 32 teams that fell in the competition to continue their effort trying to give better performance in the future.

The second-prized works are a ladder trolly by a senior high school student Chen-yiu CHONG (鍾宸祐, Taichung Municipal Hui-Wen High School) and an eco-friendly nail painting device by a college students team (led by Guo-hau CHONG鐘國豪, Far East University). The former is a convenient invention combining ladder and trolly that largely lifts work efficiency. The latter is a device that can reduce the emission of toxic gas in nail painting.

According to CHEN, the delegation received great supports from the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Economic Affairs, for instance, in subsidizing the students members' air tickets and the development of the traditional industries. The supports, according to CHEN, indeed increased the local invention capacity.
