The Loudoun Academy of Science, a six-year-old public magnet school in Sterling inspired in part by the Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology, already matches that famous school in one vital statistic: Like Jefferson, the Academy of Science each year rejects about 85 percent of applicants.
With 240 students, the academy is one-seventh the size of Jefferson and takes only Loudoun County residents (Jefferson draws from most of Northern Virginia), but it has won glowing reviews from students and has created a research curriculum rare in U.S. secondary education.
“It was completely unlike the standard classroom procedure that I was used to, and I absolutely loved it,” said Carter Huffman, an academy graduate now at MIT. “I have yet to hear of another school that so encourages all of its students to pursue major independent research.”
Elizabeth Asai, another academy graduate, said she and a couple of Yale classmates received university funding this year to design biomedical devices, usually a process daunting to undergraduates. Her fri Read more…
It’s Sunday, and the beginning of the second full week of June. Bleary-eyed, I wake up a good half hour before my alarm and maintain enough consciousness to turn it off, knowing that I won’t need it after getting up so early. I turn a little bit in my bed before…contemplating going back to sleep. (I nearly slept again after that, but hey, it was also 1 in the afternoon.)
You might have thought that, as an MIT student, I could find plenty of things to keep me occupied today, and all of these urgent reasons to get started with them. Sure, I could do stuff, but today I don’t feel like doing anything. I just wanna lay in my bed.
Yes, I’m practically living the Bruno Mars life right now, only I’m working toward a college degree (whenever I’m not lazy) instead of making millions of dollars by already having musical talent.
Oh look, an embedded music video!
I had many, many, many lazy days as a rising freshman about to enter college.
I was reading a blog post about maching learning and fairy dust:
It prompted me to make the following comment as I am a general critic of the fairy dust approach to problem solving. Of course it is just a rant (one of my more light-hearted rants).
The problem is all wrapped up in how funding / opportunities are distributed. The folks with money who want to affect the future positively are generally not brilliant in any domain other than making money. So they consult experts as to what is the next big awesome thing or as you put it, what is the next fairy dust. Once an expert convinces a person with the money of the veracity of the particular brand of dust it becomes dogma. And those who want money salute the the fairy dust and make loud protestations as to the general amazingness of fairy dust. They also shout down non-believers to show their undying loyalty to the fairy dust. They give invited keynote speeches about the future of dust.
By doing these things, they get funding.
