Endeavor Academy, Arroyo Grande High School
Arroyo Grande, CA
Mr. Avila, a lecturer in the engineering department at the California Polytechnic University at San Luis Obispo, developed a program that includes electronics, computers, sensors, robotics, spacecraft, rockets, aircraft, materials/structures and design of new products, which prepares students for college and the high-tech industry. Endeavor now is being copied at another high school through a federal grant. Mr. Avila will be in charge of recruiting students and engineering professionals to teach courses at the new academy. Last November, he was selected as a speaker at California Gov. Gray Davisí first Aerospace Summit.
