The Jang Yeong-sil Awards are named after the famed scientist and inventor from the Joseon Dynasty. Born in the late 14th century and raised in a low class home, his intellectual prowess saw him overcome social barriers to become favored by the king. While working for the palace he helped create objects to measure objects in space, an iron printing press, a water clock and sundial, and water gauges.
