Anything else we should know?: I’ve been interested in science and engineering since first grade when I moved to Washington and was invited to make a science project. From second to sixth grade I performed various science experiments and got first place at the state science and engineering fair multiple times. The love for science and engineering stayed with me through middle school until I joined the FIRST robotics team in high school and that is where I was able to develop more and learn how real engineering projects work.
