Hello, my name is Justin Forbes, I attend Abington Friends School, and will be a Junior this fall. I like all my classes, but I enjoy math, science, and history the most. I’m a part of a medical program at my school that delves deeper into the topic of medicine, and I learn more about the medical field. I also enjoy technology and engineering and I have been a part of my school’s robotics team since 9th grade. I’m learning how to code on my own, and hopefully I will be able to code my own projects. I am interested in business as well, and I will hopefully be able to join a business program at my school next year. I run track both indoor and outdoor, as well as run cross country with my school. In my free time I spend time building robots, reading all types of books, coding with raspberry pis, and playing video games.
Science has always been an interesting field to me, filled with infinite possibilities and potential solutions to problems. It’s always amazing to learn about science, whether in school, reading about it on your own or in a program like TRIP. I also applied because I knew it would help me decide if research was a career I wanted to pursue in college or not, while getting some lab experience, and doing experiments is always fun and a great learning experience!
I’m very excited to continue this very unique experience, especially with other people my age who are driven and interested in the same things that I am. I’m also excited to figure out what my independent project is on, and hopefully even though my art skills aren’t great everybody will understand my GA.
