Technology & Engineering
Animo College Preparatory Academy
Los Angeles, CA
My passion is technology.
In today's world, technology is everywhere and can be used in many ways. In the eighth grade, my STEM teacher influenced my interest in engineering by introducing us to the concept of how things work. I, as well as my class, learned different techniques through hands on experiences. In his class, we made mouse-trap cars, CO2 cars, and paper rockets in the two months that I was enrolled in the class, before moving schools. He always created models of the projects we were working on to help us improve our own designs.
I admired my STEM teacher because he dedicated so much of his time and hard work into making sure we had had the tools necessary to create our projects. There was never a dull moment in his class, because of the excitement that was created around the wonders of engineering. This inspired my dream of becoming an engineer.
Arthur is a determined student who wishes to explore engineering as a potential career. His eagerness to succeed and learn, along with his character, are all factors which will allow Arthur to become successful in the Cal Poly EPIC Engineering Camp. Arthur has received countless awards from our program because of a his high GPA, attendance, and overall character as a person. He is constantly improving himself and stepping out of his comfort zone in order to try new things. Being a part of this program will allow Arthur to not only experience living in a dorm, but also allow him to discover engineering through hands-on learning and through successful people in the field.
Thanks to everyone who helped me go to Cal Poly EPIC this summer. It was an amazing experience and confirmed my decision of wanting to be an engineer. EPIC exposed me to many aspects of engineering. I interacted with other students who were interested in engineering and made good friends. EPIC opened my eyes to the world of engineering and thanks to all the support I received, I was able to attend and decide that aerospace engineering was the perfect fit for me. My amazing counselors also helped me come to the conclusion that aerospace engineering was for me.
Knowing that I will have the awesome opportunity of attending Cal Poly San Luis Obispo's EPIC Engineering Camp during the summer is incredible. I cannot wait to start working on the many activities EPIC has to offer. I have been excited ever since I applied. Since then, I have also been giving it my all in school to keep my grades high, especially in my Algebra 2 class, so I can attend with more knowledge regarding the math aspect of engineering. Summer will slowly come, but when it does, I'll be ready for EPIC.
