What AEOP program(s) did you participate in?
What are you doing now?
Current 11th grader, hopefully to major and pursue at least a masters in a STEM field.
What are the best things about the program(s) in which you participated?
eCYBERMISSION really promoted iterative design; just because an idea works doesn’t mean that it’s the only or best solution. eCYBERMISSION also really promoted the value of teamwork; that the difference between an ok project and an exceptional one is not just in the project but in the teamwork.
Why are you excited to be on the AEOP Alumni Leadership Council?
Without my mentor who introduced me to eCYBERMISSION and AEOP, I would have never learned about the program. I want to help ensure that as many kids had the same opportunity that I did, and that only happens by actually going out and helping teach about AEOP.
