More than 2,000 qualified young adults apply to participate in the annual Naval Academy Summer Seminar but only 850 of said applicants are selected to participate in each of the sessions. Knowing that the summer seminar deals with STEM and the Navy, I quickly applied myself so I can be one of those 850 selected young adults and participate in a science, technology, engineering, and math-loving atmosphere. I am interested in attending the Naval Academy Summer Stem program because I live and breathe science and engineering. I want to continue my path to higher education through the Naval Academy one day.
For this past week, I was an intern for Week 7 of the Harvard Medical School MEDscience Summer Program which offers a total of nine sessions of a week-long summer medical intensives for high school students. 13 students passionate about science, medicine, and healthcare come together from all over the country and even Canada to take advantage of the unique opportunities MEDscience offers. In general, there are very few medical programs in the country gear towards high school students whether it be because of age and education level, laws and hospital policy, or costs. Most of the medicine-related summer programs you can find for high school students are those in which you’d sit in a classroom all day and learn what you could have learned
My middle school efforts and personal achievements have prepared me well to succeed in the Wheeler Magnet Program. I have always had a love for science and a desire to pursue and obtain information that allows me to further understand the world and the events within it. The Wheeler Magnet Program will let me participate and focus on the major subjects that affect my future, both in and outside of school. I would like to close by thanking you for giving students this opportunity to improve our own education through this
Growing up, most kids in my generation had Disney Channel or Barbie Dolls. As I was raised with 6 siblings and cousins and having just emigrated from England, my family did not have ample money to expend on cable or fancy toys; subsequently, I resorted to books. As I read more and more, my interests began to broaden, and my keen admiration and curiosity for how and why things work in certain ways progressed. As I grew older, I realized that science could be used to answer many of life’s most complex questions. Once I was accepted early into The University of Georgia, I declared my major as Biology with a pre-medical intent, deciding to further pursue my curiosity about living organisms. I soon realized that I needed to achieve more, and decided
I find the field of biology fascinating and I thoroughly enjoy learning the subject. It is an ever changing and developing subject with new advancements every day. These advancements can change people’s lives for the better and I want to be part of that.
Kalamazoo College offers an elite, well-rounded undergraduate program for science students of all natures. The popularity of Kalamazoo College alone shows that the undergraduate program can be trusted to help me achieve my goals if I attend. Furthermore, Kalamazoo College is known as an honors college, which shows that only the best and brightest students will gain acceptance and be given the honor to attend. I believe I am part of the group of current high school graduates who can be labeled as the brightest, and wish to surround myself with other like-minded persons so as to further my own capabilities and studies. The purpose of secondary education is to further increase understanding and knowledge of the surrounding world, in order to contribute
Ever since I read the novel Some Girls Bite by Chloe Neill, my interest in University of Chicago took root. Every aspect, from its renown Core Curriculum to its extensive research opportunities and its diverse student body, readily matches the setting in which I hope to immerse myself over the next four years. It still amazes me how I can major in Cellular and Molecular Biology, explore the city of Chicago, and spend a semester abroad. Hopefully, I will one day be able to take advantage of UChicago’s many research opportunities by participating at the BioPhysics Core Facilities because I want to study genome sequences with state of the art technology.
The TOPS curriculum and enrichment in science and math has deeply motivated me towards this program. By entering the TOPS program I will be surrounded by students that also share my love for math and science. In the TOPS program, students are exposed to an enriched curriculum and an increased workload, this will help me prepare and become well adjusted for high school. The TOPS program is truly a terrific learning opportunity, it’s enriched curriculum, profound teachers and awesome students are definitely something I want to be a part of. Thank you for considering me.
In my mini-movie I will describe my personal journey and how joining the science olympiad club changed my life. In the mini-movie (m-m) I will show the steps that I took personally on this journey. For an overview, my ordinary world was boring it was school, my call to adventure came along soon enough though with the creation of a science club. At first I was reluctant to join I feared the change that the club would bring to my life and my lifestyle, I didn’t want to give up on the other things I liked to do in my free time. However, after meeting the teacher that ran the club I decided to give it a shot. When I stepped through that door into that classroom I had committed myself to that club. I made some friends and we got off to a good start,
This program reinforced my motivation to pursue my interest in biology in college. I plan to continue research throughout college and pursue a Ph.D in biological
The Summer Learning Lab is a great opportunity for me to grow as a person and as a science student. It will show me technology and science I have never seen before and will also be a great program to help me explore my options to be able to decide what I would like to study in college. This program is a great opportunity for students like me that have the desire to study science, but do not have the resources necessary. The Summer Learning Lab will open new doors and adventures that I know will change my life and the way that I perceive things. Science is such a wonderful field and I can’t wait to explore it with The Summer Learning Lab.
The world is full of questions, but over time science has provided answers to many of them. Science, biology in particular, fascinates me. One theory can provide answers to hundreds of questions while forming thousands of other questions at the same time. While these questions form the base of my interest in biology, my experience in a biomedical program last summer specified my fascination to diseases.
This semester, I have accepted a position with the School of Science as a Recruitment and Engagement Assistant, which allows me to share my passion for science with prospective students. Each day at work entails promoting both the field of science and the science program here at IUPUI. I believe this work experience will be vital
In 2015, I was nominated to participate in the eleventh and twelfth grade Science Olympiad and won first place over-all against sixty-four teams. I competed in the Science Olympiad regional competition. The competition focused on physical science, the nature of science, Earth science, and space science. in 2013, I also was recognized with an award in biology for biology and environmental science. Being a part in these opportunities strengthened my passion for
Students participate in an ongoing research program with the support of an experienced scientific mentor. They develop an independent project, implement their plan, analyze the data, and report the results. At the end of the summer, they present their findings to researchers, other students, and parents.
