Republic of Moldova, Chisinau City
I’m in the 11th grade at Theoretical High School ‘Orizont,’ and I also compete in physics olympiads. A friend of mine who is a fellow olympiad told me that there is an excellent course on electro-magnetism and that is was online, free of charge on edx.org.
I’ve since taken 6.SFMx Street Fighting Mathematics; 2.03x Dynamics; 8.01x Classical Mechanics; PHYS102x Electricity and Magnetism, and am currently taking 8.05x Mastering Quantum Mechanics. I chose these courses because I participate in physics contests and olympiads, and these courses helped me a lot with studying useful topics and verifying myself.
I love the courses and the professors are great. Learning online is something relatively new for me and I like being able to study at home, control the lecture, and take a break whenever I want. Also, I never would have had the possibility to attend such courses without edX.
I hope to study engineering at Princeton, MIT or Stanford.
