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.
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.
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.
I would apply to www.givingteens.com! They are a tutoring organizations looking for volunteers. They help low-income kids in poor countries.
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!
