When playing golf it’s important to keep track of your body’s movements. The smallest things can make or break your golf swing and it’s important to make sure the right muscles are being utilized and your body is coordinated throughout the swing. Though there are many aspects of the game that you cannot control, by taking account the position of the ball as well as the positioning of your own body, you can take steps to massively improve your playing level.

The principles of physics are at the heart of almost every sport; one of these sports is golf. Understanding concepts such as rotational motion can help a golfer improve their technique when striking the ball. Taking account of forces such as gravity and aerodynamic drag can help a golfer better predict where a ball will land after it is struck. Overall, there is no better way to improve other than practicing, but understanding the physical forces that come into play throughout the game can be beneficial in fully understanding it. Source
Engineering plays a huge role within all of our lives, whether or not we are aware of it. From items that we use everyday like silverware to golf equipment, engineers play a role in their creation. The golf ball that we use today has evolved from what at first was just a wooden ball, engineered over centuries to achieve maximum speed and distance. Golf clubs have also been altered over the centuries to be best suited for the game. Countless scientific tests are run to perfect every aspect of the game and its rules or at least make them as close to perfect as possible. Source

Experience: She has been passionate about working with children from a very young age, and started volunteering in her freshman year of high school as a biomedical instructor, teaching children from low-income neighborhoods. During her time as a volunteer, she was able to educate through many different health experiments and teach not only what goes on in the body, but why it is important. As she got more involved, she began creating lesson plans to better engage the children. She also just recently started her own children's day camp where she is able to work with children outside of a classroom setting, teaching them important values through different activities that require communication and teamwork.
