Review for Summer Science Program, Cary, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

This program was great! I met bright, curious high schoolerse from all around the world, and I learned more about calculus, astronomy, and physics than I ever could have dreamed! Also, SSP introduced me to programming for the first time, and though I probably don't want to make programming my livelihood, I am definitely glad I learned this important skill and I certainly find it fun and engaging.

I would make it six weeks instead of five! It was very rushed because six weeks of material had to be squeezed into five weeks, and with six weeks, I would feel as though I understood the topics more (plus, there would be more time to do fun things that won't have to be "mandatory fun time").

Role:  General Member of the Public & We learned about physics, astronomy, calculus, and programming during the day. At night, we observed a specific asteroid and had to code a program that modeled the orbit of this asteroid.
