6. How have you built/used what you learnt at Inventure… how has the Inventure experience helped you in college/life?

The breadth of opportunities provided at Inventure have helped develop my interests. For example, I learnt how to listen to other perspectives and lead a team when I was a member of the Student Council. Today, I am the student representative for the Math course at university. The faculty at Inventure also helped me pursue my passion for Physics beyond the curriculum. This has culminated in my colleagues and I publishing a paper.
