"I discovered my love for Biotechnology, and have added that to one of the majors I am interested in for college. Being part of the Nanotechnology Club has gifted me with skills I would never get outside of Valley Christian. Valley Christian is one of the only high schools in the world to have two Atomic Force Microscope (AFM) which can be used at the nanotechnology level. Being trained on the AFM, I feel that I have been opened up to a whole new world of science, which will become the future of technology."
"One invaluable skill I learned (at VCHS) was Computer-Aided Design (CAD). Having prior experience in CAD has given me a slightly competitive advantage over my peers as an undergrad engineering student. When a friend asks, "How do you chamfer the edges of this solid?" I just can't help but thank the Applied Math, Science and Engineering (AMSE) Institute for all the pre-college experience it has bestowed upon its students." (VC alumnus)
"My favorite memory is working on the International Space Station project (ISS project) in my first year. It was so amazing to learn so many new skills, such as building an experiment from scratch, along the with fact that we would be the first group of high school students in the world to send a quad experiment into space. My favorite part of the whole experiment was at the end when our team went to Cal Poly SLO. Five of my teammates and I presented our findings and results to some of the most influential professors, scientists and CEOs in the science, math, and engineering world! That was definitely an amazing moment." (VC student)
