Alexis Lo


Hi, my name is Alexis Lo, and I am a junior at SHC. 

Academically, my favorite subjects are math and science. Something about math is the satisfaction of getting a problem right and knowing that you achieved something through that long process. Solving math problems is something that I enjoy the challenge of, so math has been one of my favorite subjects since elementary school. On the other hand, I enjoy science because I like being able to understand the world around me. 

This year, I am building from my classes last year to take 4 APs (AP Computer Science A, AP Mandarin, AP Language and Composition, and AP Calculus AB), 1 Honors (Biology 1,2H), along with Ethics and U.S. History 1,2. I’m also a part of a bunch of clubs here at SHC, including Tech Crew (lighting) and being a leader in the Photography Club. Outside of school, I currently take ballet classes about four times a week. Over the past year, it has become an 8-10 hours-a-week commitment.  Dancing has taught me several skills and life lessons that everyone should learn in their life, such as discipline and diligence.

Being in i2 has given me so many valuable learning experiences. Through the passion projects the program has allowed me to pursue, I have learned so much about programming in different languages and gained better time management and persistence.  I also look forward to the skills I can gain this upcoming year!


My 2023-2024 Project

This year, I will be attempting to create a website/app students can use to inform them of the class options at our school. I plan to include descriptions of each class, with generalized ratings and a way to compare similar classes. My goal for this project is to create a convenient place for students to […] Read more

i2 Project Update 2022: Train the Brain

My initial plan for this project was to create a code that simplifies the philosophy created by Dr. Kawashima; doing simple problems every day can help train your brain to build better communication and memory skills (among others). I also planned to test this website with a couple of candidates to prove whether this process […] Read more

The i2 Journey Begins

I’m very excited and grateful to be part of the i2 program for the next 4 years. I’m looking forward to all of the opportunities to work with people as interested in STEM as I am. Over the course of the summer, I’ve heard a lot about the i2 program, and what I’m getting into. […] Read more

Train The Brain

The idea underlying the project is that every day, you complete several simple math problems and that they would help develop more neurons and neural connections in your brain (which can improve memory, creativity, communication, and more)

Project details


An precise attendance tracking system that replaces the slip system at our school. Through AppInventor I will create a prototype of this system and prepare to possibly test it on several classes. By scanning a student ID, a student can mark themselves as counseling, tardy, or present without having to go to the attendance office.

CourseWise is a website with data from students that articulate their day-to-day experiences in each course at SHC. Each course will have its own page, with data from student surveys such as homework types or class productivity.
