I would love to attend Wake STEM Early College High School because I believe it will give me a head start on my learning after the high school level. Your program will improve my college experience and save thousands of dollars in college tuition by giving me an associates degree and high school diploma upon graduation. I am also exceedingly interested in a career in science or mathematics. I have always been focused on learning science and math because it is something I love to do and I can have a successful career in the future by using those skills. I understand that attending this prestigious school will require a certain level of maturity and willingness to work hard. As an 8th grader at West Lake Middle School, I am a member of the National
STEM gave the tools and skills necessary to apply to amazing internship and encourage me to be an outgoing student. While in high school I participated in clubs such as civil engineering and animal rescue club where I helped collect $500 in donations for dogs in the BARCS Animal Shelter by selling chocolate bars. I have also participated as a member in the National Honors Society where we commit to scholarship, leadership, service, and character. Taking advantage of all these experiences helped make me develop and mature as a person.
I was too young to compete, and by the time I was old enough, my family had relocated to Georgia. Although my opportunity was stifled, my passion for STEM was not. While in middle school, I seized the chance to apply to a STEM magnet school and was accepted. Today I am grateful for my experience as I’ve taken advanced math and science courses that will prepare me for college. I also was Vice President of my school’s Science Club and member of the Science Olympiad Team. I learned about community opportunities and different applications of science through these extracurriculars. Through Science Club, I led and performed experiments for elementary and Special Education students interested in STEM at outreach events and science fairs. In Science Olympiad, I participated in Technical Problem Solving and Compound Machines events. These events gave me a glimpse at mechanical engineering as I built devices with my partner, and how to think creatively and logically, which are key in the science
Taking the Smarter Measure assessment allowed me to learn so many interesting things about myself, stuff I didn't even know. A fact that took me by surprise was the fact that i’m an aural learner, which means that I learn through listening. I always thought of myself as a visual
When I began playing softball at age five, I had no idea how impactful this decision would be in my life. Furthermore, when I began coaching ten years later, I did not yet understand how much of a positive influence coaching could convey. Coaching softball aided me to overcome depression.
I think that I could improve my time management skills by making sure I limit my distractions. Facebook is a big thing I like to check periodically so if I block out a little bit of time throughout the day to have that moment to check facebook or phone a friend or family; my thought is that hopefully by the time I am ready to do homework, I will have gotten that all out of my system which will allow me to keep on task to finish the assignment or project. Another thing that helps me that I should do more often is find a place with the environment that will help me focus on my tasks and not be distracted. I find that a lot of times when I work on my school work at home I want to do other things such as clean house. When my house is a mess I find myself stepping away from the computer to clean it. So when I have to do a assignment it would be best if I can leave the house to finish up my assignment. I think it would also benefit me to plug in some time for myself to have fun. This is something that I don't do often and have a hard time finding the time to do, but I feel that if I did that it would help me to stay focused on tasks when that time comes and to not be so
Throughout high school, I challenged myself by taking Advanced Placement math and science courses, such as chemistry, physics, and calculus. These classes jump started my interest in pursuing a STEM related career. I also had the opportunity to take an Introduction into Engineering and an Engineering
Wake STEM Early College High School will be very beneficial to my high school and college experience. Being able to take college classes in high school is not only great as I will gain college credit in high school, but simply being accepted into this school looks great on a college resume for North Carolina State University, or any other college. I would love the environment of smart, friendly, hardworking people, where we could all help each other to receive the best education possible. This school will challenge my academic abilities, but also doesn’t compromise my ability to be in a sport. Wake STEM Early College High School will be one of the best schools to help me unlock the best and highest of my academic abilities.

Time Management Techniques Time management techniques are essential to living your life more efficiently. Many people spend their days in a frenzy of activity but achieve very little because they are not concentrating on the right things. By using time management skills, you can learn to determine which of the things you do are important, which can be dropped, use your time in the most effective way possible, break down the roadblocks that waste it, and increase the effectiveness.
When I was a kid, I already showed my interests in engineering. My dad gave me a set of Lego as birthday gift, which could be built a city that people live in. But I didn’t follow the instructions, I built a spaceship instead. As I grew up, I learned how electricity works and how electrical energy transform into mechanical energy. I really wanted to create something that can move, not just another Lego spaceship. I took a battery powered motor out of my toy car and added a propeller to the motor. Then I installed the customized “engine” into the boat made by plastic foam and sailed it in the bathtub. The interests drove me to enter South China University of Technology and I was chosen into 'Talented Students Program ' of the School of Electronic and Information due to my outstanding academic potential shortly after I enrolled. My computer related courses are my best and I realized that I should build my essential knowledge in electrical designing as well. I went to Creative Electronic Lab a lot in my spare time and met two E-fans like me. We build a team and won the second prize of the province in 2009 "NEC" Cup National Undergraduate Electronic Design Contest with honor. Finally, I only used 3 years to finish all my
When I was 18 years old, my father bought me a tool that became the foundation of my future learning. It was my first computer. While my brothers fought over their gaming console, I spent hours writing scripts and small programs that I could run on my new machine. My
