The Salt Lake Center for Science Education has taught me to be a mindful, risk taking person. In SLCSE we don’t shy away from world problems, we talk about them and analyze them and start up a conversation. In my experience SLCSE has taught me to not be afraid of failing, instead we fail forward and learn from our mistakes, whether it be a science fair project or a personal problem. I have also learned to try things out of my comfort zone and not be afraid of doing things on my own. Going to this school has benefitted me more than I thought it would. In my earlier years in this school I would get annoyed by all the speaking we had to do and all the reading and essays we had to do. Now that I’m getting ready to graduate I see that I find myself using a lot of skills that I used in the activities I found useless. I understand now that little by little we have been helped into becoming hard working humans full of empathy and resilience to change reality.

What I really liked about my school is the many experiences you have to explore outdoors but also making that outdoor experience into a learning experience. An example of this is going to Rio Mesa to work on a science project. Another thing I really liked was the teachers and how flexible they were to help students. They are always available to help students when needed. One big thing about SLCSE is that they have implemented methods in which they can be involved throughout the community. This has allowed for people to come into our school and utilize our resources but to also receive help. They have done this by going out and picking up trash to clean up around the community, providing people in need with jackets, collecting canned food, going to the homeless shelter and providing food as well as helping store the food, and last year peer mediation was implemented to help students resolve conflicts to improve interactions with students.
SLCSE has provided me with the most extraordinary academic experiences. From participating in university level science experiments in the desert to traveling to nearby elementary schools to teach lessons, I have learned so much and had so much fun.
