My Academy Experience

By Jorge C, a student in the Academy of Science and Engineering at Stratford STEM Magnet High School Choosing to take part in the Academy of Science and Engineering is probably the best decision I made at Stratford. I am currently in the engineering pathway in ASE. ASE stands for Academy of Science and Engineering and the academy’s mission statement is: The Academy of Science and Engineering will equip students with the skills necessary to be prepared for college and ready for a career in the fields of engineering or any branch of science. This is clear what the academy wants for its students: success.

I personally enjoy all of my classes that are provided by my pathway, specifically Advanced Design Apps which is the third engineering class in the pathway. Right now we’re designing a bottle rocket on a website named WhiteBox Learning. After the design process comes the construction part. This is one of the websites that the pathway will use to simulate the design and construction process engineers use on a daily basis. I appreciate the staff for the growth and support of the academy, because of them students can have various opportunities rather than just one or none.
