In my life I have only had two significant experiences with science, the Energy Academy and Physics class. Both experiences have changed my point of view in science forever.

I went to a magnet school with peers that were under privileged, including me as well. None of us have gone to places like the Science Center, and when we saw it we all thought it was the most magical place ever. The most memorable exhibit was the...
