During the COVID-19 pandemic, keep in mind that everyone's extra-curriculars are on hold.

You could take an online course from Harvard or Stanford to earn a certificate in. Start a blog or a podcast about something that matters to you. Try doing "remote science" projects through the Citizen Science project. Start a website to keep your city up-to-date on the latest COVID-19 information. Start a YouTube channel with tips or tutorials on soccer, track, or cross-country. Become an online tutor.

Good Luck!

I hope you found this helpful.

Like the others have mentioned, you can start a blog, learn something new from online courses such as Coursera and Edx, do a lot of volunteering (some sites can be VolunteerMatch, All For Good, American Red Cross), get an internship...but really, you can also touch up on other hobbies you just never had the time to, like photography, vlogging, gardening.

Thanks for the information!

You need to do extra-curricular activities that are related to engineering/stem/math!!! so far you only have sports which is great IF you are gong to be a recruited athlete for college (play on the college team or go D1). If not you need to undertake some more science activities like engineering club or engineering class, science olympiad, science fair/science research class, etc. Good luck!

Got it! Appreciate it!

You can work with non-profit organizations in your area to make masks, donate food, etc. There are a lot of volunteer opportunities.

Do you know where I can volunteer ?
