How does karma work?
The system is simple: you receive karma (sort of like a credit) when you help others. If you're short on karma, you can do any of the following to earn more:
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on a question you post
- 1 karma for each 👍 upvote on an answer you post
if your answer is marked accepted
- 10 karma for reviewing an essay
- 10 karma if your essay review is rated 5 ⭐️
You can then use your karma to submit an essay for review or guarantee an expert answer on Q&A.
Hi! I don’t want to major in computer science, but I am also pursuing a stem career. I would recommend joining or creating a club or team that is stem based. An example of this is science Olympiad or science bowl. My school doesn’t have either of these but I’m currently starting a science bowl team. Another thing you can do is learn to code/do coding activities. An example of this is creating your own coding club, or furthering your knowledge by taking a class. Another thing you can do is take computer science classes, like AP computer science. If, like mine, your school doesn’t offer this, try taking something like it at a community college. Make sure to keep in mind, it’s less important what you do, and more important how dedicated you are. Even if most of your extracurriculars are not in stem, by showing leadership you can be just as competitive. Hope this helps!
Science Fair - You could do a computer science-based project.
Science Olympiad - focus on events like detector building and etc. because those have more computer science elements in them.
Hackathon - can compete in competitions (do not know much about this other than it exists at my school).
