What AEOP program(s) did you participate in?

Gains in the Education of Math and Science (GEMS), eCYBERMISSION

What are you doing now?

I’m a freshman in the Morris County School of Technology Environmental Science Academy in Jefferson Township, New Jersey.

What are the best things about the program(s) in which you participated?

Participating in GEMS has shown me STEM activities outside the classroom.  The teachers shared their enthusiasm for the significance of the many ways STEM education is valuable. The best thing about eCYBERMISSION was being on a team with friends and designing and executing our engineering project that made our community safer.

Why are you excited to be on the AEOP Alumni Leadership Council?

I’m excited for the opportunity to be on the AEOP Alumni Leadership Council and influence the ways the program can attract more students.  I look forward to helping other students participate in the programs that have given me a broader understanding of what can be accomplished through STEM.
