"The reason I want to keep being in S.T.E.M is because I have learned a lot. I never thought S.T.E.M would make me a better student and improve my skills. S.T.E.M is offering me many opportunities in order for me to be successful. I want to continue learning and trying new things. I want to prepare myself for college, jobs, and the life out there; S.T.E.M can do that for me. "
"I have enjoyed doing S.T.E.M. Science in 8th grade. I enjoyed the Grand Challenges because they are hard but they challenge me in a way that helps me grow as a student. I like the way S.T.E.M classes are taught and it fits me. I enjoy S.T.E.M. classes and want to continue in them and improve myself for the future."
