Aki Tobin


Hey, I’m Aki! I’m super excited to be a part of the I2 program, and I have learned a lot about important topics and especially about myself in the short time that we have been able to meet in person. Not only did it teach me things, I have also made strong connections with my fellow I2 scholars. Before SHC, I went to a small school called SFS. When I was applying to schools, I really wanted a larger school where I could discover what I want to do. However, the deal-breaker was when I heard about the I2 program. Since we have been back in person, I have joined the soccer team, the band, and a few honors and AP courses. Even though the majority of my freshman year was online, it was really enjoyable and I still learned a lot. I can’t wait to see where this year takes me!

Motorized Kayak

For my project in 2020-2021, I motorized a large kayak. I decided on this project because I love to build, design, and applying my skills in the real world. I was motivated to make this kayak electric after seeing the effects of gas on the Russian River.
