Wayside: Sci-Tech Preparatory is a tuition-free, college-preparatory charter school founded in 2012 as Wayside Schools’ first middle and high school campus into which its three elementary campuses feed. Dr James was the first employee at (a consumer electronics company, producing connected home technology) and lead the engineering design team there through from idea to shipping product. SciTech High School Days feature the growth areas of Pittsburgh: Biotechnology, IT, Robotics, Advanced Materials Processes, Environmental Technology, and Nanotechnology – and connect students with leading scientists and technologists in a fun, dynamic atmosphere. Science will change beyond recognition, and the positive impact on the rate of technology growth in the world will be enormous.
These robots were built by teams of high school students in only six weeks for the just-completed FIRST Steamworks game. My favorite subject throughout my studies in school was mathematics which is a powerful and very interesting course of study. The reality is that being an Ultrasound Tech requires a keen sense of anatomical structures and their location and relation to one another. I also have fond memories of looking on the professor’s bulletin board for our posted grades before leaving to go home after a school quarter. I was well taken care of at Virginia Tech and I had made some really good friends there. I did miss my parents and family when I was away at school but I grew to get used to it.
Students and teachers select activities such as demonstrations, Tech Zone – corporate and higher education interactive exhibits, workshops and presentations by cutting-edge experts in science and technology through a conference style approach. The technology used in sonography is different than radiography; ionizing radiation is not used, but instead high frequency sound wave technology is used to capture images. I also attended Virginia Tech basketball games at Cassel Coliseum which kept me at the edge of my seat. I would never in my life have ever expected something as tragic as this occurring at such a wonderful school.
The concept of thought swapping is moving ahead very rapidly, it appears that in the future our personal tech devices, social networks, and virtual world will be a blurred reality. My preference is Virginia Tech having studied there and enjoying my time as an undergraduate engineering transfer student. The hardest thing I had to come to terms with at Virginia Tech which was way after my time there was learning of the campus shooting tragedy that occurred there on April 16, 2007.

I attended school campuses at Stony Brook, NY-SUNY Stony Brook; Hempstead NY-Hofstra University; Potsdam, NY -Clarkson University; Buffalo, NY-SUNY Buffalo; Troy, NY-RPI.
