Honeywell Introduces New Students Leadership Program
The students have been carefully selected through a complex review process based on academic achievement and community involvement. All junior and senior level high school children of full-time Honeywell employees are eligible to apply.
These includes simulated astronaut training, a realistic shuttle mission and various psychical challenges. The students will also be able to design, build and test their own rockets and will receive a flying training simulation similar to that used by jet-fighter pilots.
"We're incredibly excited to send this impressive group of students to the Leadership Challenge Academy," said Tom Buckmaster, President, Honeywell Hometown Solutions. "The program leverages and develops the students' individual talents that will launch them to the next level of personal growth and achievement for affecting change as our future leaders,"
"Honeywell and their employees have a long history of promoting unique math and science education programs around the world," says Larry Capps, CEO of the U.S. Space & Rocket Center. He adds, "Honeywell's Leadership Challenge Academy is further evidence of this commitment. As such, we share a common goal of helping to prepare the next generation of scientists, engineers and explorers. We are excited and proud to partner with Honeywell in this endeavor,"
