This scientific study will analyze the first moon landing by NASA in the Apollo 11 space mission from July 16th to July 20th in 1969. The launching of the Apollo II program was the first designated landing of a space vehicle in the history of the human race. Under the leadership of Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins, and Buzz Aldrin, the Apollo 11 mission defined one of the most important acheivements of early astronuatics in the Apollo space program. The initial stage of the mission involved being launched from the Kennedy Space Center by a Saturn V rocket. This rocket had three major parts involved in the space mission, which included a command module, service module, and lunar module that carried the three astronauts into space after the launch.
The Association for the Advancement of Science did the same in 1850, and in 1849 the US Nautical Almanac Office hired her to calculate the position of Venus. Mitchell continued her career in science through the Civil War. in 1865, she joined the faculty of Vasser College where she was the only woman. The school gave her access to a twelve-inch telescope, and she began to study the surfaces of Jupiter and Saturn. During her career, she also observed sunspots, stars, solar eclipses, comets, nebulae, and the moons of Saturn and Jupiter.

Similar to the article, I remember education being a major social focus in Jamaica. Students that were considered strong or fast learners were considered smart. I remember my brother and sister coming home from school and talking about who was first in their class, in math and science. I remember my brother, at one point, struggling with a math concept and doing whatever he could to figure it out. Days after days went by as he attempted to practice, teaching himself and master this one particular math concept.
A Brilliant Young Mind movie based on true events begins with this monologue from the main character, Nathan. During his primary years, Nathan was diagnosed with being on the spectrum of autism combined with synaesthesia which is a sensitivity to change of light and patterns. He was so extremely gifted in math, that his mother sought out a school setting to support this gift and he began receiving instruction at the high school level with a specific math teacher trained in the International Math Olympiad (IMO). The sudden death of
Throughout high school I have tried to take classes that were not only challenging, but would also be relevant to my future. I have taken nine AP level classes since sophomore year, and I have thrived in the difficult coursework that is meant to be college level. So far, I have proven my hard work and dedication by passing all of the AP tests thus far. I have also taken advantage of the advanced math coursework that is two years ahead than normal. I began this track since the fifth grade, and I continued and progressed all these year.
The WiE RISE camp interests me in a variety of ways. To start off, I have always been a math and science kid, I do well in the subjects and I enjoy learning them. This led me to enroll in the STEM class at my middle school which initially got me very interested in Engineering and Architecture and everything even semi-related to those career fields. I did those STEM classes every chance I was offered it, I really loved the idea of making stuff that would be useful and helpful to others. The summer before I started high school I moved to Windermere from Dublin and when I enrolled they had no classes even partially similar to the STEM classes I was taking back in Ohio.
Now for a personal anectdote (I know, FALLACY!). My mom taught me the three Rs (readin ', ritin ', rithmetic) before I started K. I was always ahead of my peers in almost everything until 6th grade. I started pre algebra. I could do the math. It was easy.
Every day, my grandmother would wake me up at 6:45 AM so that I could get ready for school. Then, I would take a warm shower, eat eggs and bread for breakfast, and take the bus to school. My schedule for semester 2 consisted of Math, Biology, Physics and 3D Modeling. I originally had English but enrolled it in ADLC to lighten the weight of my coursework. Math was always my favorite subject in school ever since Elementary school.
