Engineering is hard to learn, yet fun at the same time. Unfortunately, you have to use mathematical equations, but you get to build stuff at the same time. So, what advice may previous freshmen engineers have for these new engineers. “Keep on track and follow directions ,or else you'll get lost,” recommends Ernie Hermosillo, a 9th grader.
In Design, you show expression, while following the Elements and Principles of Design through projects. “My Favorite project was the puzzle piece. It was a chance for me to express myself and show who I am,” says Daniela Marin, a 9th grader.
Now, practically the whole school has had to choose between Design and Engineering. Andrew Sanchez, a senior, chose the engineering pathway, and mentions “My dad works in construction, and I was into building at the time.” For him, he made his decision based on a love of building with his dad, which lead him to chose the Engineering pathway. Now, as he's on to bigger and better things, he could soon be the engineer for our stairs.
Now, you’re walking from lunch to your next class. Your heart rate is normal. No more 3 flights of stairs, yes! Design and Engineering have their difference and similarities, but in the end, we will all adjust to the way we learn, and soon enough we'll choose our pathways. So, keep on breathing!
