Armando's Story

My passion is science.

I discovered my passion for science when I got to the middle school KIPP LA Prep. I realized that I wanted to know much more about the subject. Right now, at Collegiate, I take Biology and I’m really enjoying it. I try to push myself and try to master this class. Next semester I will take Robotics at my school, and I will study in order to learn more about science and technology. I realized that I want to have a job that has to do with the sciences, and I started paying much more attention in my science classes than an ordinary student would. Going to the this camp will help me prepare for a career because it will help me learn and get a head start in college.

A Note from Ms. Siesfeld, Armando's Counselor

We have very limited science resources at our school and Armando does his best to get what he can out of every day that he has at school. He is putting his interests out there and trying to further learn about science through a rigorous summer program. Armando is a quick learner and can teach himself many concepts given reading and other resources through which to learn. He deeply cares about broadening his own horizons and frequently brings interesting information and connections he has independently learned and seen into class. He would benefit from having a structured environment with other passionate people from which he can learn. I think this program has the opportunity to fundamentally enhance Armando's experience in school and in building interest in his future career field.
