Meteorology and architecture
I’m really interested in the Governor’s STEM at Landstown. I went to their open house and they had different classes that we went to as part of the open house. I originally went there thinking I would be interested in architecture, but when I went there the engineering class really called to me. Instead of drawing the building, it was more about what it was made of and how well it can hold up against the physical, environmental and other factors surrounding it.
My first sentence when I was little was “Local on the eights,” from the Weather Channel. I always loved weather and when I was in fifth grade I wanted to be a tornado chaser, but I’ve matured from that and am now more concerned about the engineering side of things. My ultimate goal is to design weather-resistant buildings. A building – not a bunker – a real building that looks good on the outside, houses people regularly and can also withstand a category F-3 tornado, with minimal damage or a category F-4 or F-5 with minimal damage and minimal casualties. By merging my interests of meteorology and architecture I hope to start a new way of how buildings are created.
