“I attended the Apple Engineering & Technology Camp last summer. This opportunity was around the same time I was entering the Google Science Fair. It was an amazing opportunity. They flew us out to California – Cupertino to be exact – to the Apple headquarters. We got to spend an entire month there and work alongside the Apple engineers, who served as our mentors, to overcome engineering challenges. We learned a lot. We participated in many workshops, learning about different types of engineering – electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, computer science, coding, and app design. It was amazing for me because computer science is the field I plan to pursue in college. It was great to be able to be within the walls of one of the biggest tech companies in the world and see how they develop things from scratch.”
