I have attended the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh for the last two years. I will be entering my junior year pursuing a Bachelor Degree of Science with a major in Environmental Studies. My career interests entail green energy and natural resource management. I was a young child when I started attending a summer camp program that emphasized nature and environmental conservation—ever since I have made outdoor activities into hobbies and continued interest in environmental sustainability. The University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh focuses on sustainability through green building, alternative and solar energy, and curbing pollution.
Electric cars over the last several years have been a controversial topic. Companies have ran into issues regarding the batteries, pricing, and clearly competition with gas fueled vehicles. I noticed Tesla Motors a few years ago and instantly fell in love with their electric vehicles. Tesla managed to keep a very clean look with a sports car feel to their vehicles, and they are currently working on their new battery which is expected to last much longer. The price of their vehicles at the moment are priced higher than most average families can afford, but Tesla announced they are releasing a more affordable vehicle in 2017. Throughout the existence of Tesla they have made it clear they will not settle with just making vehicles that are in compliance with the laws set in place, their company will strive to make the best vehicles they can.
I have been interested in Technology and certain aspects of Science since I was a child. As I became older I came to a realization of how much I love Technology; I began to excel in my technology and engineering classes but not do as great in my science classes. I began to loathe science as I took upon the love of Engineering. As I have researched different types of engineering in previous years, I have stumbled across Agricultural and Environmental Engineering. I have decided instead of seeing science a challenge I cannot overcome I should work harder to be better at the subject. Therefore, I can combine my love for the planet and horticulture with my love for technology and engineering. Having an internship at USDA as a Senior will further help me achieve my goal of having a career in the STEM field. I feel having an Internship my senior year will cause me to further succeed as the research I will hopefully be doing can cause me to grasp a better understanding of the different types of careers open to me in the future.
For me, to participate in the WAS program would be an inspiring and empowering experience. Engineering piqued my interest above other professions. It matters immensely to me because I want to make an impact, and engineering holds the power of making a difference. I’m eager to work with other talented people and be involved in bringing all the wonders of the future to reality. It’s amazing to know you’re contributing positively to society, and it’s important that I’m proud of my work.
The biggest inspiration in my life has been my Penn State University engineering teacher, Dr. Wieslaw Grebski. Dr.Grebski has earned his mechanical engineering doctorate and master’s degrees from Stanislaw Staszic University of Mining and Metallurgy in Krakow, Poland. He is an advocate in renewable energy, and has made it his job to help promote clean means of transportation in the Hazleton area. He has taught at Penn State Hazleton for about thirty years, and runs the dual enrollment program that allowed me to take the introduction to engineering class, which he teaches.
My name is Nico Elbert T. Foronda. I'm currently pursuing a bachelors degree in Nursing with a minor in Public Health at Old Dominion University. I served as a Navy Corpsman for five years then separated the military to pursue higher education. A majority of those years I was performing direct patient care for military members and their families which ultimately developed my passion for health care in
One that is mindful of its carbon footprint; working with organic materials and developing new eco-friendly manufacturing processes. As an innovative servant leader, I intend to work alongside unconventional thinkers, not content to meet global standards, but to surpass those standards and be enthusiastic contributors to a cleaner environment. The skills I learn at LSU will ensure success; success that will not be measured by personal achievement or individual gain, but rather by our contributions to the betterment of society and how we shape the community around
Tesla Motors, Inc. was founded In 2003 by Elon Musk, Martin Eberhard, Marc Tarpenning, JB Straubel and Ian Wright. The name Tesla came from the engineer and physicist Nikola Tesla. Tesla designs, develops, manufactures, sells advanced electric vehicles and electric car components In the United States and internationally. It also develops electric components and electrical systems for other automotive companies.Tesla started to get the attention of the world when they produced the first electric sports vehicle, The Roadster, based at a price of $109,000 dollars In 2008. Between the years of 2008 and 2012, Tesla sold 2,250 Roadsters. Tesla has stopped all production on the Roadster since then to focus on advancing the company to more the average consumer. Next, came the Model S, an electric luxury sedan which debuted In the United States In 2012 and Is American made In California. The Model S, base priced at $57,000 dollars, was the first of It’s kind bringing the luxury of a Mercedes-Benz and combining It with a electric battery to give you 208 to 315 battery miles without refueling or charging. The Model S Is the second-best-selling plug-in electric vehicle behind the Nissan Leaf. Tesla decided to go ahead and develop the first electric SUV, called the Model X In 2015. In march of 2016 Tesla revealed It’s next car, called the Model 3. The Model 3 Is only going to cost consumers $35,000 and Is on track to be released In 2018. Only one week after Tesla announced the Model 3,
I currently help service the community by giving back time through volunteering at different non-profit organizations as well as being involved with MSU Tutoring in the Office of Community Service at Morgan State University. I currently help the environment by recycling and volunteering at the Howard Peters Rawlings Conservatory and Botanic Gardens of Baltimore once a month. Before I graduate from Morgan State University I would like to create an Environmental Organization that focuses on consumption, recycle, and disposal issues within the Black Community. Once I am stationed on a Naval base I would get involved with the local community by empowering, and educating youth on STEM majors, especially minority females. I want future generations to know there are diverse career opportunities that differ from the standard teacher, doctor, and lawyer responses usually heard in school. I would also always recycle and become involved in organizations that focus on keeping Earth sustainable for all of
Through working with clubs within my school and community I have volunteered at a number of river and road cleanups. The pollution in my town is overwhelming when you are the one cleaning up the environment and it makes one stop and think about why their community would not take better care of the earth. As an ambassador for the National Society of High School Scholars I would be able to inspire my generation to take better care of the earth by recycling and not littering. By educating my generation I believe we could start a serious movement which would tackle the problem of pollution not only in my community but in all communities in America and
Nikola Tesla, an engineer and inventor, led the electrical industry to the cutting edge of technology. Tesla's most important invention, alternating current (AC) electricity, remains the global standard of electricity today. He also made major contributions for the X-ray, wireless radio, and devices ranging from microwave ovens to MX missiles.
Money and fame do not motivate my goals. Engineering in all forms is a field of innovation and invention. Aspirations of any great engineer should be to introduce to the world a new idea, product, or service that will make people happier and the environment safer. Success in these challenges is a reward greater than any dollar amount or public recognition. Engineers bring societies to new levels of civilization through their advancements in technology and discovery. The challenge to provide people with ever-increasing standards while at the same time feeding the population with ideas of what could be attracts my imagination, intelligence, and curiosity far more
Sam Tesla has been working in a Chemical Plant in Pasadena, Texas for years now. Unfortunately, an accident occurred which destroyed all of his work as well as his lab, he had to be transferred to a privately-owned Cryogenic facility near Las Vegas, Nevada. Sam was your average 27 year old guy and he had long hair, short trimmed beard, and skinny but athletic for the most part. He’d been assigned to work on a project, he had to collect neon (a non-reactive gas) to then give to the company in the state of gas which will then be used for many everyday products: glow lamps, electron tubes, signs, plasma televisions, fluorescent starter tubes, and cryogenic refrigeration and gas lasers. Meanwhile a public enemy had appeared in the Sin City area.
The telephone interview with the owner of Tesla Model S. According to this conversation, the owner is very happy with a purchase of the electric car. By paying the high price once, this car saves a lot of money in the future. Tesla does not require frequent maintenance and very reliable on the roads. Also, it does not require to visit the gas station. However, one main problem is that Tesla wasn't made for the long trips. In other words, this car was made for the local trips only, not for the long distances. It requires charging battery every
