Classes and Clubs I Should Take in High School

I am a high school student (a soon to be sophomore) and i wanted to know what classes i should takeand clubs i could benefit from. Also, I would like to know if taking pre-calculus and robotics now will help me or hurt me since i still need to take three more years of math. I have been getting so many different answers from teachers and i don't know what to do. What should i do to get the most benefit for my future in aerospace engineering?

Hi Cynthia, I think that taking any pre-calculus and robotics classes that are available to you would be great preparation for college!  Any math, physics, science/engineering courses at your school would be a great way to get some experience and exposure to the field.  Really though, you will get a lot of answers because there is no wrong way to prepare as long as you are doing something you enjoy and learning about math/science/engineering.  As far as activities, I would definitely get involved in anything that gives you practice in math/science or exposure to industry, as well as anything that gives you an opportunity to communicate/present as that will give you great preparation and confidence in future communication.  Good luck!
