Lockheed Martin Aeronautics launched into Canutillo High School today to challenge students through their Engineering in the Classroom (EITC) Community Outreach Youth Program.

Students will experience an F-35 cockpit simulator, compete in STEM trivia games and a paper tower challenge, operate a 3D printer, and receive poster/prize giveaways. Canutillo High School is a Lockheed Martin “Project Lead the Way” partner.

“We are thrilled to have Lockheed Martin bring their engineers to inspire and challenge our students,” Canutillo High School Assistant Principal and STEM Coordinator Christopher Judge said. “Our focus here at Canutillo has been immersing students and promoting careers in science, technology, engineering, and math.”

Canutillo Middle School recently joined Canutillo High School, making the District one of only a few in the state of Texas to have a sixth through twelfth grade T-STEM track.  T-STEM Academies are rigorous secondary schools focusing on improving instruction and academic performance in science and mathematics-related subjects and increasing the number of students who study and enter STEM careers.
