The first A-day of each week there is an EASA workshop at EASA. Instructors are available from 3:00-4:30 to help with EASA classes. There is bus transportation to the High School and/or home.
Twenty-five EASA students attended the First Robotics Competition (FRC) launch earlier this year in Corvallis on the OSU Campus, where the theme of this season's challenge was unveiled. The FRC team at MHS is new this year and is open to all students. This year's game is, "Rebound Rumble" and students now have 6 weeks to develop and program their robots to meet their basketball themed tasks.
The Robotics competition will be held March 8-10, at the Portland Memorial Coliseum. The FRC team, known as "Nerd Herd" has received 2 grants for a total of $13,000 to start up the program this year, one from NASA and one from JC Penny here in McMinnville. For more information or to get involved, please contact Juanita Clarno at JClarno@msd.k12.or.us, or 503.565.5771.
EASA students are required to wear an approved EASA polo/button down shirt, khaki pants and closed toed shoes while on the Evergreen campus. Students will receive a shirt the first week of school and can order additional shirts. Orders will be submitted at the beginning of each month. Please make checks out to McMinnville High School and give order form and check to Owen Griffiths at EASA or Sue Kinion at MHS. Shirt order form
EASA Academic Policy
In the EASA program we will expose your student to rigorous curriculum, tied to state standards as well as engineering standards set by our college partners. We understand that students may find this quite challenging, thus not meeting the academic benchmarks necessary set for EASA students. Academic Policy
EASA students are required to meet the following academic expectations each semester:
- At the end of each semester each student will have a cumulative Grade Point Average (GPA) of 2.75 or better on a four (4) point scale in your EASA specific courses.
- At the end of each semester each student will have no EASA course grade of a D or an F.
