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.
Well first of all, the category of the activites dont matter that much as long as they are generally accurate. Colleges don't care whether you list it as science/math vs computer/technology. That being said, you didnt provide enough details about the activity so its hard to decide. But both categories would work. If it was more heavily intensive on programming and using technology in engineering, then go with the computer/tech category. If it was more math and physics based and learning about the fundamentals of engineering, then go with the science and math option. And a final note is that yhe category doesn't matter as much as the description. In the description of the activity, describe what you did so college really understand the activity.
