In order to further expand my knowledge in the science field, I decided to attend Queens High School for the Sciences (QHSS), a high school located in Jamaica, Queens that requires prospective students to take a rigorous entrance exam. QHSS places an emphasis on the sciences as a college-preparatory curriculum which can not only deepen my interest in science, but also provide me with a glimpse of college-level academics. I have taken Biology, Chemistry, and Physics, the core science courses. After my sophomore year of high school, I had fulfilled the required amount of credits for science. However, my enthusiasm and dedication to the subject encouraged me to take Advanced Placement Physics this year as a junior.
Hope you enjoy. SCIENCE - MIXED RESULTS In Science we learned for our first unit, relationship, in how plants and animals relate to plants and other animals. After we learned about ‘Photosyntheses’ and ‘The trophic level’ our teacher, Mr. Haag, thought to assess our learning to have a little quiz. I think I did pretty well on this assignment because I got a good grade (20/24). My second reason is because I learned a lot by this unit.
Chemistry, we all have heard this term and have managed to create our own definition. It could stand for a connection we share with someone, or it could simple be a class we have taking either in high school or college. Most students have taken a chemistry class while in high school, but for me I had my first class the beginning of my freshman year of college. In college chemistry it was divided into two separate periods, which will be averaged together later to determine if I would pass or fail this class. The two sections include lecture, and lab.
Ever since I was little, my main desire/goal has been to pursue a career in the science field. This passion for science has flowered throughout my life, especially during high school as I have taken plenty of science courses while taking advantage of the more in-depth classes (AP classes). In these classes, we have done various labs, but none of them has had such an effect on me other than the electrochemistry lab. A few months ago, in my chemistry class, I carried out an electrochemistry lab to examine the power of the galvanic cell. The lab made me like a researcher in a lab, it felt like the real deal as I was using statistical software, voltmeters, wires, diluted chemical solutions, and making my own battery.
Two, my first grade teacher, which I have not seen in ten or so years, remembers my passion for science, even as a five year old child. Reflecting upon this, it really should not be a surprise. I was the kid that knew all the planets in order. I was the kid that could identify trees by their leaves. I was the kid that received a microscope for my eight birthday.
S. Amarnadh. In my junior year, I have fabricated a demo website of customer and operator information for a software industry called MIRACLE SOFTWARE SYSTEMS along with a team of six members. These projects clearly depicted the fusion of various trades of computer science engineering. I also presented papers on “DNA COMPUTING”, “CLOUD COMPUTING” and “MOBILE COMPUTING” for which I received positive reviews from my professors and peers. I regularly attend guest lectures, workshops and conferences to be in tune with the latest developments and I keep myself abreast with the latest technologies by reading
To start my career path I plan to attend Southeastern Illinois College to get my Associate in Science. After graduating from SIC I will transfer to the University of Southern Indiana to obtain my bachelors in biology education. Teaching science is a dream of mine because of the hands on experiments. Also problem solving and investigation for a answer. Plus, the excitement on the students face when you do a cool experiment would make me feel even more excited.
ACADEMIC STATEMENT OF PURPOSE Over a casual dinner-table conversation a few years ago with a chemical engineer, my curiosity about his profession led to quite an engaging discussion between us. Quite frankly, I was amazed by the several innovations which the Chemical Engineering fraternity has bought about over the years and which have really changed the lives of so many people across the globe. For example, he told me the dramatic change in the gasoline production levels which came about due to the Houdry Process in 1934. It set me thinking on what a remarkable opportunity I had to channelize my love of chemistry & physics to pursue my higher education in the field of chemical engineering & make a career in this field. Once in college, I found that chemical
I actively participated in sports, cultural and academic activities. Apart from the inter school activities, I actively participated in a regional level social science exhibition which helped in my all round development. Right from my childhood I had a tendency towards Mathematics, Science and English in general. This basic interest led me to take Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry as my major subjects in high school at Narayana Junior College. And my passion toward world of electrical and electronics led me to my decision to opt for Electrical and Electronics Engineering at CVR College of engineering, JNTU, one of the reputed universities in the our
Having studied all fields of maths since the fifth grade I was gradually attracted by the honesty of this science that gives us wisdom to see how the world works. I attended classes in a maths center and spent every August in a maths camp, then I became a pupil in the strongest maths school in St Petersburg. It was rather challenging to keep on that schedule, however, I was keen on maths because of its duality : the most abstract and the most applied science I ever met. In university I chose Applied mathematics because I was drawn by opportunity to see results of my work and my knowledge put into practice. Undoubtedly, lots of courses, like mathematical analysis or mathematical physics, which were taught to us not only for learning that particular material but for opening our minds, gave us a chance to break usual bounds of understanding to see so much more in mathematics, to visualise its connections and structures,.
