Teen Chosen to Attend Honeywell Leadership Challenge Academy
Student comes from Raleigh Charter High School
Every year, hundreds of students apply to spend a week at the Honeywell Leadership Challenge Academy at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama. Among the 292 students from 41 countries and 27 U.S. states chosen to participate this year is Raleigh Charter High School senior Claire Liang.
The program encourages students to pursue STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) careers through real-world, hands-on challenges in coding, computer sciences and astronautics. Activities are delivered in fun and exciting ways that bring STEM studies to life.
“Engaging students in science and engineering is now as fundamentally important as learning to read and write,” says Deborah Barnhart, CEO and executive director of the U.S. Space & Rocket Center. “By investing in these young students, Honeywell is helping to prepare them to become the global, STEM-literate citizens who will change our world.”
Academy attendees were chosen through a rigorous application-and-review process based on academic achievement and community involvement.
