Education is not easy. To some, it may be frustrating for a professor to say, “forget most of what you learned last class about leases, as tax laws have rendered that information obsolete.”
Discoveries that can improve and even save lives, however, are more important than anything you can be taught by someone else. For example, by using Metal-Organic Framework (MOF) conjured up in collaboration between MIT and UC Berkeley, people built a water harvester capable of producing 2.8 liters of water in 12 hours in 20-30% humidity; in other words, in an arid habitat powered only by the sun. Of course, none of this would be possible without a thorough understanding of chemistry, physics, biology, environmental science.
10% of 2,000 U.S. colleges and universities receive 90% of applicants. UC Berkeley is one of them, admitting a slender 15% of applicants. One Professor has devoted his career to benefit us all, and today it reaps rewards. STEM majors of the world unite! Water harvesters are here.
What our future means and holds can be summed up by Issac Asimov: “There is yet insufficient data for a meaningful answer.” Quintessentially, today’s education opens up the future. Times, people, and information are rapidly evolving, but you can stay current with college news and ACT, SAT, SAT II, and AP exam insight with PVP Test Prep.
