DUBLIN, CA–Going into the Engineering Academy at Dublin High School has helped me expand my knowledge of different engineering careers and pathways; however, I was still apprehensive about what I wanted to become. Unexpectedly in the middle of my summer, I received an email from Ms. Eugene Chou, the Dublin High Engineering and Design Academy Coordinator, informing me of an opportunity to enroll in a six-week aviation course held by the Patriots Jet Team Foundation (PJTF). Despite my limited knowledge of aviation, I decided to attend the course. Little did I know, but this course is what helped me decide on what career I wanted to pursue for the rest of my life.
“It is great that Dublin High School students were able to participate in the aviation course offered by the Patriot Jet Team Foundation this summer,” said Ms. Eugene Chou. “These courses not only expose students to real career choices but also motivates students to do well in school. By allowing students to see an available career path and the associated academic content, young people can better understand why they are learning the things that they are in school and be encouraged to continue their academic coursework when things get challenging.”
