Q) How did Waring prepare you for college and specifically for the area you have decided to major in?
A) Waring taught me how to ask questions, and to think about things in multiple different ways, which is crucial to engineering problem solving. In terms of content, I entered both physics and calculus this year with a strong base of understanding and knowledge to draw from. In physics particularly, I felt that my course was solidifying knowledge I already had, rather than adding new knowledge. Also, my time management skills have come in handy.
Q) What do you love about science?
A) I love being able to match theory and practice. I love solving a problem in the theoretical and then being able to take the solution and use it to build or predict something real. It's really fascinating to me how the real world can be modeled and predicted using math and theory, and that we can work use the theory to mechanically improve real-world situations.
