Connor K.
Alumnus of NYLF Pathways to STEM

What has been the most memorable moment of your program experiences?

Getting to work with Robots and learn how to program them!

 

How as the program encouraged you to take action in your school or community?

 

Going to envision has made me want to continue my dream of becoming an engineer. They gave me a lot of information about the different kinds of technology I can work on.

 

What inspires you as a young leader?

 

Knowledge - you can't grow without learning every day.

 

How was attending the program different than learning in a traditional classroom?

 

We got to experience a lot of different things. Like that I was allowed to touch and build things on my own. A lot of times in school we aren't allowed to make things on our own, only watch the teacher do it.

 

What is your ideal job?

 

Engineer with the Space Program.

 

Where do you hope to go to college?

 

Florida Institute of Technology.

 

How has your program experience impacted your life and your future?

 

It has helped me understand that there are programs out there for even kids my age. It has also inspired me to keep my dream going.

 

What would you tell other students who are interested in attending an Envision program?


GO! It is worth it. It's a lot of fun, you learn a lot and you meet new people.
