Astronomy Career Panel

Aloha, Vikings!  Have you ever thought of a career in Astronomy?  Or Engineering? Do you want to learn more about these possibilities?  You're in luck!  Journey Through the Universe Week starts February 27th, and we have many presenters scheduled to be on campus.  Some of you may be meeting presenters through your classes, but we also have some that are open to anyone interested in signing up.

On Tuesday, February 28th, an Astronomy Career Panel will be here during pds 3 and 5.  And on Wednesday, March 1st, a local Hilo boy working on his PhD at UC Irvine is going to talk with us about his educational journey so far, and give us insights on the many possible ways you could go if you're interested in Engineering.  See Ms. Lawrence or Mrs. Frias in N-103 to pick up a pass if you are interested in signing up for either of these sessions.  We hope to see you there!

[VIDEO] Career Fair

Hey, Vikings!  This is Mrs. Frias, your Career and College Counselor at Hilo High School.  I'm super excited to tell you that this Friday, February 24th, you will all be attending a Career Fair here on campus during pd 4.  Right now, I have over 50 different agencies across most of our pathways, coming to Hilo High to share information with you about the careers you might be interested in pursuing in the future.  To help you to be prepared for the fair, I will email you all a list of the agencies and organizations, as well as some guiding questions you might want to prepare to ask when you attend on Friday.  This list and questions will also be printed and given to you on Friday in pd 4.  All teachers have the schedule of which session your pd 4 class will attend, so please just report to pd 4 as usual.  And please also let your parents know that although it is still an EVEN day, school will end at 2:15 on Friday, Feb 24th.  I hope you will make the most of this opportunity!  I'm really looking forward to this, and I hope you are too!
