A McMinnville High School Career Pathway Program located at Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum
Overview The Engineering and Aerospace Sciences Academy (EASA) is a career pathway program of McMinnville High School, developed in partnership with, and located at, Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum. EASA offers an integrated, hands- on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) program that prepares students for college and professional careers. EASA also offers dual high school/college credit coursework, through Chemeketa Community College, that allows students to earn college credit while also satisfying high school graduation requirements. Careers in Engineering Aerospace Engineer ($64,356)Drafter ($38,580) Engineering Technician ($45,672)Aircraft Mechanic ($50,184) Set & Exhibitor Designer ($41,436)Tool & Die Maker ($43,200) Civil Engineer ($62,040)Biomedical Scientist ($133,700) Architect ($54,492)Statistician ($65,500) Industrial Engineer ($105,000)Commercial pilot ($121,000) Young people should build their character, study hard, and plan a career that is worthwhile. Doing something worthwhile is my goal and ambition. I want to make the world a better place to live. Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, you can achieve. —Del Smith, Chairman, Evergreen

Fundamental Rewards of the EASA Pathway Model Access to Professionals in Technology, Engineering, and Applied Sciences Commercial Grade Training Stations Partnerships across generations
Fundamental Rewards of the EASA Pathway Model Integrated High School and Community College Experiences Active support from museum staff and docents
Fundamental Expectations of the EASA Pathway Model Time and energy demands are high for students, staff, and volunteers Intrinsic rewards, delayed gratification, concrete expectations.
Fundamental Expectations of the EASA Pathway Model Cultural Interface between Public Education and Private Enterprise What is my grade versus What did I learn?
The journey will not be easy Easy has already been done To truly grow, we must seek the limits of... Our capacity to learn To grow To care
The Path Chosen Belongs to You Perhaps no one will know your name Or even what you have accomplished Only you and those you love may know your story Or your character and sacrifices
And Will Mold the Future And what changes you have made Remember No act of kindness No matter how small Is ever wasted Be determined to contribute, change, and enhance a life
Student Survey 2010 What do you like the most about EASA? “The integration of classes and the environment that teachers provide for students.” “EASA’s hands-on content.” “Opportunity to interact or work on a team with others.” “Seeing real people in the field, as well as going to the field to see what happens.”
Parent Survey 2010: What do you like the most about EASA? “Our son being with other students who take their learning seriously and the shared philosophy that high school is more than a place for socializing.” “I like the location because it serves as a great motivator.” “The instructors and the environment. The applied learning aspect, so they understand how the things they are learning will help them in the ‘real world.’“
The Evergreen STEM Institute The Evergreen STEM Institute, offered through Chemeketa and featuring the nationally recognized Project Lead the Way pre-engineering curriculum, combines online college credit coursework with Saturday Lab work at the Evergreen Aviation and Space Museum. EASA students can participate in the Institute in addition to the dual high school/college credit coursework available as part of the EASA program.
