Kara has spent her life trying to figure out how things work. Her whole extended family has gone into STEM careers and she plans to do the same. She plans on going to Utah State University to major in biological engineering. She finds the human body remarkable and wants to find out how to make prosthetics respond to the body. One achievement Kara thinks will help her on her way is her first place award in the environmental science division in the 2016 SUU science fair. She views this as her greatest accomplishment. Another thing she thinks is a great achievement is her science class. She was asked to take a junior science class as a sophomore. She has also been in honors math classes throughout her high school career.
