I built a Mind Controlled Prosthetic. What schools would accept me?
I am worried that I wont be able to get into any worthwhile colleges after I graduate high school. I have really good engineering and BME related extra curriculars, but my grades and classes are mediocre. I am currently a Sophmore.
Freshman GPA: 92
-I had a 97 in normal physics
-I didnt take any honors
Sophmore GPA: 90
-Took honors chem, but 85 average
-normal calculus, AP BIO, ISTEM honors, no world language
-Ap calc, Ap compsci,Ap physics, honors English
In terms of extra curriculars...
I won at my state science fair in Biomedical Engineering for my project called "Mind Controlled Prosthetics: An extremely Affordable Transhumeral Robotic Arm". I pretty much made a prosthetic arm using the same techbology as the John Hopkins Modular prosthetic arm. All this work was done individually in my basement. I won 1st Place Biomed, Airforce award, innovation award, and a finalist award.
A month later I went to my schools Hackathon and won first place overall with my project which hacked a headset to read 10 channels of EEG brain signals.
I currently work for a Robotics company where we work with post college robotics programs and software. The only college I have seen using it is MIT. I cant talk alot about this. My boss scouted me at the hackathon. Paid position.
I also teach robotics to children at a learning center. And get paid.
I have been in the school robotics club, and I volunteer with another club. I used to be part of the IEEE club, but it dissolved. I played tromebone for 6 years, and been a part of boyscouts since 2nd grade.
I just wanna know what colleges are good for BME or Engineering that would look at me. I want to go to a school that will be challanging in terms of engineering and robotics.
