Arroyo Seco Junior High School and Saugus High School have partnered to introduce Career Pathways to students, with automotive technology the focus of the next panel on Friday, February 23.
The grassroots effort began in January with Saugus Aerospace Engineering students visiting Arroyo Seco, where they showed groups of 8th graders a variety of robotics, rockets and gliders from their class projects.
Aerospace teacher Seth Groller talked about the progression of skills students acquire through the sequence of classes in the pathway. Arroyo Seco parent Tammy Fujii, a ground data systems manager at JPL, delivered a powerful message about career readiness, pointing out that communication and collaboration skills go a long way in complementing student’s academic performance and contribute to employability.
A Career Pathways panel will spotlight fire science on March 16; a sports medicine panel is TBD.
The panels will take place at 21380 Centre Pointe Parkway, Santa Clarita 91350. For start time and more information, call 661-259-0033.
