I plan to utilize the lessons I learned in high school to continue to excel in the classroom. I love the idea that by being in the JMU Honors program, I will have access to smaller classes, engaged faculty and experiential learning. I am excited at the thought of living and studying with other students who have my same academic focus and I look forward to taking advantage of every opportunity the program would offer. In summary, I think I would be the perfect candidate for the JMU Honors program because I have a desire to continually challenge myself and to strive for excellence. I want to make the most of my four years of college and, just like high school, I plan to excel academically.
I completely agree with this based on the experiences that I have had as a student at Michigan Tech. All in all, this video has inspired me not only to work harder towards my goals, but also enable others achieve
To begin with, attending the past engineering camps are some significant events in my life that have made me want to be an engineer. All the camps I have attended have been extremely informative and super fun. Participating in the experiments and projects at camp have helped make the decision of what I want to be. I remember attending my first engineering camp, MITES8, and having a blast. I immediately knew I wanted to be an engineer, so I have attended each camp in order gain more of knowledge of each field of
Transitioning from high school to university was stressful, but Science 1A03 has been a tremendous amount of support during this time. The course enabled my journey through the first few months of university straightforward and also has taught me valuable skills about university and the different science courses offered at McMaster. The many aspects of Science 1A03 included the lectures, “Introducing … talks”, mentoring, MRI’s and weekly quizzes/reflections. Each week there would be one lecture where a guest speaker or Dr. Symons would talk about the different resources offered at McMaster or even vital skills to have while in university. One of our guest speakers was the Thode librarian, who showed us the vast topics of books present as
My chemistry professor also is very enthusiastic and passionate about her subject, so it has been interesting to get to experience this. I think as a student I have become more dedicated to my coursework as college classes require a certain degree of dedication that high school
I realized my interests were for automobiles when I visited spent time with my grandpa as a child. I always found myself curious of all his tractors, trucks, cars. They all fascinated me so much, I became obsessed with the functioning of the machines. In my head they were like puzzles, every nook and cranny had a piece too it. And finding that perfect piece is what drove me to figure out cars.
Now I stand on the state where I can proudly say that this passion has driven my growth, motivated me to grow even further and augmented my hunger for quality education. Recalling my childhood, I always used to stay puzzled whenever somebody asked what I wanted to be in the future. Maybe because unlike other kids, I could not quite say that I would want to be a Doctor or Pilot, because my heart did not say that. Gradually while growing up, I was very much interested in science, mathematics and other science programs and I always wanted to participate. I even got prize for presenting the best science experiment at class 9.
Having good communication skills, I have been anchoring most of my school and college events. As a music lover and a guitarist, I believe that composing a melody and harmony is as interesting as solving a math problem. I am a team player who likes to take up responsibilities and exhibits leadership qualities. These traits, combined with my academics have made me a school leader, a sports person and the best student throughout my secondary and senior secondary (first year) schooling. While enriching my extracurricular life, my work as a leader in parades has shown me the importance of teamwork and has taught me important skills of sound interpersonal
Working as a TA was an amazing experience because I was not only able to share my passion for computer science within the WIT community, but was also able to solidify my own knowledge of the subject. During my first few weeks on campus Dr. Wu introduced me to several of his colleagues within the department, Dr. Jones Yu and Dr. Mira Yun. When meeting with both of them I was able to express my passion for computer science and also my determined mindset to work towards a Ph.D. in computer science after obtaining a B.S. and M.S in CS and a MASt in Applied Mathematics. When I expressed these interests they both decided that teaching me to think and work as a graduate student would be beneficial to my future goals.
For the engineering profile assignment, I chose to write about a well-known computer scientist Dave Cutler. As I am a computer science major myself, I decided to dig through his information and found out that he developed multiple operating systems as a software developer. Due to the marvelous operating systems he has created over his long career, he has been heavily praised as one of the most brilliant minds of operating system development. Reading the intriguing information on his accomplishments in operating system development made me feel inspired in writing about him and enhanced my love for computer science in general. Thus, an innovative goal just popped in my head and it was to design an operating system for any multimillionaire corporation to raise the potential of tangible
However, contrary to the media this community provides many jobs and academic opportunities to its population. Jane and Finch is filled with plazas that attract entrepreneurs to set up businesses which results in higher employment rates for the neighbourhood. The public schools also provide students in the area with many opportunities such as: scholarships, field trips, extra-curricular activities and programs to enhance the educational experience. The “FIRST” program is a strong example of a beneficial opportunity as it provides Jane and Finch with the chance to explore the world of robotics. This program piques the interests of many students that are thinking of a career in the engineering path and helps them gain experience of what they are getting into.
We did a lot of simulation-based learning in my EMR class and it was my favorite part of the course. I was also attracted by the WMed approach to teaching through teamwork. Especially the Team Based Learning Halls, which will benefit my immensely since I have found that collaboration to be very useful in my understanding a topic fully. In my undergraduate career, I had enrolled in every study group offered with my classes.
Psychology was one of my earliest career interests dating back to high school. I would eventually follow my interest and pursue a college degree in this line of study where I obtained a 4.0 in all the courses that were in my major. I also was heavily involved in PSI Chi (The International Honors Society of Psychology) where I served as our chapter’s Vice President. It was due to this passion and success that I was offered a position as an undergraduate Teaching Assistant at SIU. I believe my success and experiences in psychology would allow me to be knowledgeable about the course content and the ability to be seen as a credible source of information to my
In high school, there are competitions to help teenagers gain hands-on robotics engineering experience. Two examples of engineering competitions include F.I.R.S.T., which is an acronym for “For Inspiration and Recognition for Science and Technology,” F.I.R.S.T., was founded in 1989 to inspire young people 's interest and participation in science and technology. And B.E.S.T., which stands for “Boosting Engineering, Science, and Technology.” In 1993, two Texas Instruments engineers Ted Mahler and Steve Marum created the B.E.S.T. competition. Mahler and Marum were serving as guides for Engineering Day at their company site in Sherman, Texas.
