What AEOP program(s) did you participate in?


Words of Advice?

Don’t think that you can’t do it. Going into the national competition, there were bigger and more affluent schools who had more resources. Our projects did not use as many resources, and still they had a huge impact on our community.

Best Things about the Program?

Meeting people with different and interesting ideas. I liked talking with the U.S. Army scientists and engineers about what they do.

How Participating in AEOP Inspired You to Advance in the STEM Field?

Even though I am from a small community, I was still able to do a large-scale project that would impact many people.

If You Could Meet One Person Living of Dead, Who Would You Choose? Why?

I would like to meet Vince Cerf who invented the internet. I would like to ask him where he came up with the idea and what inspired him.
