“My number one goal is to work for NASA in an Aerospace Engineering field or to work in a government position working with rocket development or with air-based vehicles.
“Chaz has greatly developed his technical skill in the two years he has been in the Integrated Production Technology course. Most of all, he has developed his soft skills, especially in teamwork and team leading, communication (both oral and written), problem solving and critical thinking.”
Bruce Hamrick
Integrated Production Technology Instructor
Chaz’s advice to middle schoolers: “Along the way, you will find people that don't see things the same way you do and will try to discourage you. Don't listen to them, do what makes you happy and make sure to reach not for your goals, but beyond them.”
