Oscar's Story

My passion is engineering and understanding how mechanical things work. I have always loved math and science, and when we started learning physics I saw how many opportunities there were to work and create. I joined the Robotics Engineering Club at school to get a better understanding. With just a computer and some basic equipment, we have been able to build machines of our own. I love seeing how programs and pieces work in unison.

Attending the Envision NYLF Engineering and Technology program will help me pursue a degree in Engineering, specifically Aerospace Engineering. We will have the chance to work in teams, learn from the pros, and even test our creations in a simulated challenge. I will get to meet other students who share my interests. I think this experience will help prepare me for college and for the challenge of majoring in engineering.

A Note from Ms. Palma, Oscar's Teacher

Oscar has plans to major in Aerospace Engineering in college. This program could help him network with other like-minded individuals. Oscar would benefit by having an in depth look at engineering world, and this program is that perfect opportunity. He would expand on his current knowledge, and come back with new skills to share with our school. He would be able to find support and motivation to persist through obstacles while pursuing his dream.

Post-Attendance Update on Envision NYLF Engineering and Technology

I am very happy that I attended this program, Envision NYLF Engineering and Technology, because it taught me a lot of Engineering skills. I also made a lot of great friends from all over the world. This program gave me a chance to explore many different areas of Engineering, and gave me a better understanding of what type of Engineering I want to focus on. I would not have been able to create many friendships, nor learn more about Engineering without the help of my amazing donors. Thank you all!

Pre-Attendance Update on Envision NYLF Engineering and Technology

This summer, I will be participating in Envision NYLF Engineering and Technology program. I am eager to be joining the program because it will give me more hands-on experience in the area I want to focus on in the future. At school, there aren't a lot of opportunities for me to actually be able to practice my skills; however, I feel and know that this program will strengthen the skills I have in engineering and technology, and also help me build other skills.

To add on, I am looking forward to meeting and working with other people my age from other parts of the country, and sharing my experiences and knowledge with them. I chose this program because I have always been passionate about how many pieces work together in order to form one great object. I believe that by participating in this program, it will help me gain better insight on what I have to be prepared for in the future, and also if I am willing to be surrounded with that type of equipment for many years.
