A LITTLE ABOUT ME
I am a senior at Notre Dame High School and I am enrolled in AP Bio! Feel free to look at my blog posts/investigations to see what I’ve been up to and learning about.
EXPERIENCE MAKING MY OWN WEBSITE!
What was the experience of creating the site like? Did you ever imagine you would create a website? What were some posts you really thought were interesting, informative, transformative, creative? (remember you can hyperlink to other posts/pages!) What did you learn about biology, your classmates, yourself? What skills did you learn? Where are your plans for next year?
To be completely honest making this website has been a piece of work. In the beginning, I thought this website was a lost cause. Writing the blogs themselves was not too hard, I found it pretty easy to be comfortable in this type of setting. However, where I found my most trouble was organizing my blog and trying to navigate this site! With new updates and complex settings, it took me about a month to get used to writing, organizing and posting my blogs but I can confidently say I have mastered it (of course with the help of my tech savvy teacher and classmates)! This has been such a crazy experience and never thought I would be making my own website at this age and dare I say to be successful at making one? Thanks to this website, I have had the privilege to create my own professional website and start to make a brand of myself and continue my digital footprint.
This experience I have greatly improved my tech skills. I have enjoyed most making iMovies of our experiences in class or on field trips such as Save the Bay and LiMPETS. Through vlogging, blogging and reporting on labs, I have grown so much as a writer and scientist. It’s amazing how much you can do blogging: a scientific lab post, a vlog, a slideshow presentation, or an update on my personal life, all of which are on this site. I hope to continue, modify and update this site as I continue to grow as a biologist in my college career. It will be so interesting to see the kind of experiments I will be doing next year and compare them to ones I have already completed this year. I hope to continue this site as a digital timeline of my biology career. I am incredibly grateful for this experience and know that it will benefit me heaps as our world continues to be run by computers (eek)!!!!
TIPS FOR FUTURE AP BIO STUDENTS
Check out this video I made with a few essential tips I have learned that helped me survive biology this year 🙂 So many of these can be applied to other courses but remember to stay calm and that you can do this!
