Should I do challenge math in middle school?

I am advanced in math and have an opportunity to attend challenge math throughout middle school. Should I? I want to become an aerospace engineer and dream of working for NASA.

I am 11 and in 5th grade. I dream of becoming an astronaut. I need a degree in engineering to do so. I want to do aerospace engineering because I feel I would be accepted easier. I do enjoy all things space and physics.

    Hi Ellie

    It sounds like a great program and a great opportunity. "Being challenged" is part of science and engineering.

    I don't know the details of your math challenge program so you may want to check with your family and teachers that it will fit in with your life at home and school.

    Other than that - go for it!
