2Careers in Engineering 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, EvergreenOverviewThe 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 EngineeringAerospace 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)

7Fundamental Expectations of the EASA Pathway Model Time and energy demands are high for students, staff, and volunteersIntrinsic rewards, delayed gratification, concrete expectations.
8Fundamental Expectations of the EASA Pathway Model Cultural Interface between Public Education and Private EnterpriseWhat is my grade versus What did I learn?
9The journey will not be easy Easy has already been doneTo truly grow, we must seek the limits of . . .Our capacity to learnTo growTo care
10The Path Chosen Belongs to You Perhaps no one will know your nameOr even what you have accomplishedOnly you and those you love may know your storyOr your character and sacrifices
11And Will Mold the Future And what changes you have madeRememberNo act of kindnessNo matter how smallIs ever wastedBe determined to contribute, change, and enhance a life
12Student 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.”
13Parent 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.’“
14The 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.
