It made me think of the color schemes that would make it pleasant on the users’ eyes, keeping the school theme colors in mind. I used SQL to build the database. I also used C# to code the desktop application. Most of the C# that I used, was not however taught in school and we had to take out time to do our research on
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE Ever since my childhood, technology always had my attention. I was very curious to know how the machines and gadgets around me work. Particularly computers elevated my curiosity and made me wonder how they work. The ease with which a computer can solve problems which are impossible by humans with that speed, saving our precious time even though it is invented by a human amaze me. Then I have decided to become an engineer where my work helps to reduce the human effort in any form.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE I am a person with keen interest in working with automobiles and machines. I always believe in hard work and commitment rather than luck. During my schooling I was completely restricted by my parents, I spent my whole schooling in a boarding school where I am only made to concentrate on my studies. Due to this I was an introvert and don’t know much about the world, but taught with good logics and basics of mathematics and science. During my secondary education I came out of the hostel and studied as day scholar and I came to know much about the outer world and learnt many things from the internet.
The curiosity to know more about computers motivated me into getting certified in computer courses when I was only in the 9th grade. The course also aroused an intense desire to know more about computer science. I carried forward my high school level computer knowledge and scored 90 out of 100 in computer science at the pre-university level. This factor too motivated me to choose a career in computer science. Personal satisfaction has also played a key role in decisions relating to my career.
In my seventh grade science course, we were given basic information about anions and cations, we learned how to use models to create chemical formulas, and we conducted several experiments. The only one of these experiments that I can remember in detail is when we were stationed at bunsen burners, given chemicals, and were told to find out what colors the chemicals burnt. The experiments we did were often more to keep us entertained and we were never truly explained all of the science behind
Minecraft is a game for kids and adults alike, the game consists of blocks for the player to use and to build things with, along with monsters for the player to fight using swords and other weapons. I believe that it can be used in schools across the country for educational purposes. Genius hour is where we find a problem in our community and try to solve it as best as we can within about 30 minutes to an hour but we have to choose something that we really want to do. When I started doing genius hour I had join a group of 3 others and we cleaned up the greenhouse at our school as best as we could. We had opened the door to look at it and it had spiders and all sorts of bugs, couldn't even walk into it because it had so many weeds growing inside it.
Growing up as a kid in primary school, I had developed a love for figures and a lot of careers. I wanted to be a doctor, engineer and accountant. I had difficulty in choosing one out of the many careers I had in mind. Finally, I settle on accounting because it was part of the subjects given to me to study in high school hence I developed interest for it. In Ghana, most students’ careers are predetermined by the high school they attended and the course they offered in high school.
During my second year in college, I was sitting at the lab desk, waiting for Excel to finish data filtering and doing the statistics for an ion channel data. I was a Biomedical Engineering major back at the time, and I thought to myself, “ I must find a way to end this meaningless waiting.” Seeing me staring at the computer somewhat painfully, the lab postdoc patted on my shoulder and laughed, “why don’t you use Matlab?” With a few lines of simple code, he graphed my data and showed all necessary statistics without having me wait at all. That was the time I realized how computer science can simply be so powerful and hence the start of my adventure in the field. I started learning Matlab myself for data analysis, along with Java and C++ for the more classical low level programming. However, the more I learned and the more I utilized these tools, the more I found myself enjoy the actual program design and problem solving aspects of the lab work instead of the wet lab part.
On dismantling these devices, I was amazed by the several devices inside. When I was studying in my 10th grade, we were given a task to undertake a mini project, that’s when I made a simple fire alarm using a heat sensor and a couple of transistors and diodes. Later on, I figured out that hardware had several limitations that only programming could overcome. With almost every small task of this world performed through programmed devices and the fast-paced innovations inspired me to delve deeper and gain more knowledge through research. I did not want to compromise with my admiration but this ardent interest lets me pursue my passion of becoming an Engineer.
This keen interest in Mathematics is due to my good analytical and problem solving skills. This interest led me to opt for the subjects, Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry during college at ABC junior college, from where I passed with very good grades. From the time my father bought me a PC, when I was in my fifth grade, I have been very computer savvy. Right from the beginning they have fascinated me. I chose Computer Study as my optional subject during school.
