NMC Upward Bound Program Student Has been Selected to Attend a Math & Science Summer Program in Monterey (April 16, 2010)

Angela Prado, a student from the Northern Marianas College Upward Bound Program and Kagman High School, has been selected to attend a four-week Math & Science Summer Program level I, an introductory math and science skills program, which focuses on marine science at Monterey Peninsula College in Monterey, California.

The summer program will be held on June 25 through July 25. The four-week summer program is offered in a residential setting on the beautiful campus of the University of California at Santa Cruz. The program will allow its participants to experience living in a college environment, immersed in a math and science study program with students from other schools who have similar goals. In addition, they will enroll in courses which include marine biology, mathematics, written and oral communications, and college orientation and personal development.

Along with the rest of the program participants, Prado will also have the privilege of participating in laboratory and field activities that will focus on note taking skills, quantification, observation, description, graphing, independent and group research, experimental techniques, and oral reporting. Workshops, speeches from guest speakers, counseling, and enrichment activities will be included in the program to help enhance learning.

Prado is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Bobison Prado of Tanapag. During her leisure time, Angela reads novels and cooks. Currently, she is an active member of the KHS National Honor Society.

When asked how she feels about being selected to participate in the 2010 Monterey Peninsula College Math & Science Summer Program, Prado replied, “I am very excited.”

When asked how the summer program will help in her educational endeavors she responded, “I believe this program will help me academically because I am very interested in science and its challenging concepts. I strongly believe that the MSUB Summer Program is a noteworthy opportunity that helps students like me get the most out of college by experience.”

Prado is looking into pediatrics as a career field. She plans to work for a community hospital to assist children with infirmities they face.

"Congratulations Angela, this great opportunity will certainly alter and enhance your academic endeavor in achieving post secondary success," said Marian Tudela, NMC Director of Upward Bound Program.

Prado is a participant of the Upward Bound Program at Northern Marianas College, a federally funded TRIO program, tasked to motivate disadvantaged high school students to pursue a college education.
