A Voice From the Future – Elias Wheatfall

A Student’s experience at 2019 Aerospace Day at the Capitol.

Aerospace Day at the Colorado Capitol was truly an amazing experience. Companies, such as NASA, Lockheed Martin, and Ball Aerospace and Technologies come together to network, and actively spread the desire for students to pursue these types of careers. These careers are not limited to science and math as many may think. The diversity of these jobs expand to majors such as humanities, opening the door for many more career paths. One of many things I learned at the event was that all of these companies work together to complete projects, allowing the opportunity to network and pursue job opportunities that weren't possible before.

Universities, such as CU Boulder, are looking for high school students as well, which is a great opportunity to learn about the connections universities have to companies and to learn if these Universities will be a good fit. I learned that Ball Aerospace tends to hire a variety of engineering majors straight out of CU Boulder, which is important to know if working for ball Aerospace is a part of the career path you choose.

As a high school student looking for an internship, it is important to build as many meaningful relationships as possible. Relationships are the gateway to opportunity and will ultimately take you anywhere you desire to go. I had the greatest pleasure of interning at The 3D-Printing Store, which was presented to me through connections I made at my school. Through my internship I was able to attend Aerospace Day and meet a variety of people. I met Omar Montgomery, who is running for mayor in Aurora as well as many employees of companies that gave me great advice on how I could pursue a career in these fields. Aerospace Day gave me insight on how vast the aerospace world is along with the opportunity to network and pursue any field that I want.
