What was your favorite part of WOW? Seeing the genuine excitement and curiosity that the students would have when I helped them explore all sorts of different STEM related topics. 

Did WOW help you with what you are doing now (or what you will be doing for your future career)? How so? WOW has helped me find a passion for teaching others and has provided me valuable experiences in distilling complex technical knowledge down to easy-to-understand lessons, which will be useful when trying to communicate ideas to others no matter where my future goes.

Anything else to add? WOW has been my favorite weekly activity throughout my time at Ohio State. I not only enjoyed teaching topics to students that are interesting to me but enjoyed being part of its community as well. I am very glad I chose to be a part of WOW and have had the opportunity to spread the same passion for Science and Math to students who might not have the same exposure to these fields.
