Leidos Corporation Field Trip: May 30 from 8:20 am – 12:36 pm. Explore careers related to the development of air traffic control systems. Many of the professionals who work at Leidos focus on computer programming but not all of them. Leidos hires an AVHS senior for a summer internship every summer IF they have taken AP Computer Science. Keep that in mind for the future.
E3 STEM field trip policy: In order to go on a field trip, an E3 STEM student must be passing (D- or higher) all of their current AVHS classes 24 hours before the field trip departure time. Once a student is placed on the “ineligible for field trips” list, they need to speak with a member of the E3 STEM staff to be removed from the list. The staff member will have a brief conversation with the student and also check their current grades on Schoology.
