I would like to be an engineer so I can learn more about what engineers do. I want to learn more about the structural/civil engineers so that one day I can build something bigger. I went to a NASA fieldtrip at the Long Beach Convention Center. I learned that engineers build rovers, spaceships and inspect the engines of spaceships so that they could launch safely. Now I want to know how rovers and spaceships are built. At school I go to the science lab every Wednesday. This is my favorite thing to do in school. I’ve learned lots of science like mixtures, scientific method and periodic table. I was inspired to be an engineer because I read stories about Kim Williams and Mae Jemison. I want to be an engineer because I had a dream I launched a rocket. They both studied science and math. I should be chosen for this program because I work really hard.
