Juan's Story

My passion is engineering.

Engineering it what I want to do in the future. To me, engineering is a very cool and exciting topic that my school doesn't offer and I'm really interested in the line of work. I got introduced to engineering when in elementary school the school I was attending invited multiple people from the community to come and talk about their careers. I was introduced to an engineer who showed how he gets to work on windmills that produce energy for a lot of cities in the bay area and I thought that it was a very interesting thing to do for a career and so I would like to pursue my interest in engineering through iD Tech Camp.

A Note from Ms. Christensen, Juan's Teacher

Juan has a strong interest in engineering and seeks outside programs to supplement his general high school academics. He is a dedicated student and sincere in his efforts to receive the best possible education. He has established a goal of attending a university to study engineering and would greatly benefit from additional instruction in the area so that he can be fully prepared to meet the collegiate expectations when the time comes.

Pre-Attendance Update

This summer, I will be participating in the iD Tech Camp. 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.

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.
