Pearl Harbor Aviation Museum will host a one-day, museum-wide event to educate and excite visitors about career opportunities in the field of aviation. Discover Your Future in Aviation is an education/job fair that provides youth and young adults with information and resources related to the aviation and aerospace industries. With special emphasis on young women and underserved populations, the goal is to stimulate interest and present opportunities in STEM careers.
We will host exhibitors from a number of university aviation programs from across the country, as well as representatives from a variety of aviation and aerospace-based businesses and organizations. There will be informative workshops and panels held throughout the day to educate visitors on university program recruitment, military options and job application processes.
Additionally, we will have three keynote speakers. Z. Nagin Cox is a NASA Mars Rover engineer whose accomplishments in aerospace were groundbreaking. Captain Ronald McGee will talk about how his own aviation career was shaped by his father’s pioneering experience as a Tuskegee Airman. Steve Justice will discuss his career with Lockheed Martin’s Skunk Works operation and his work on legendary aircraft, including the F-117 Nighthawk Stealth Fighter. Finally, the project will include a number of family-oriented activities, such as open cockpits and booths for hands-on educational activities.
