Honeywell academy is supporting the leaders of tomorrow

A unique program from Honeywell is its Leadership Challenge Academy – an exciting initiative for children of the company’s employees.

The program provides high school students with a unique opportunity to build and hone their leadership skills by tackling real-world challenges in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

Honeywell Leadership Challenge Academy is the opportunity through Honeywell Hometown Solutions to bring together high school students and train them in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics,” says Dr. Deborah Barnhart, CEO, U.S. Space Rocket Center, who hosts young people through the scheme.

“The Academy exposes the young people they bring here to all the activities that go on here, all the astronaut training, all the history of rocketry. They learn the realities of living and working in space, learn how to work as a team in simulated missions, and learn how to build and launch their own rockets.”

“It’s a pivotal time in the life of each of these individuals. This is a time when they come here, we crack their cosmic egg, we allow them to see a vision of themselves in the future without any filters from family, friends, school or otherwise. They judge themselves against their peer group and they decide the course of action for their own future.”

Learn what young women have to say about the scheme

Young women from all over the world are experiencing the Honeywell Leadership Challenge Academy.

Andreea Secareanu, from Romania, says: “I definitely want to do something that has a connection with astronauts, space and rockets.”

Kathleen Rice, from the USA, says: “Now that I’ve been through space camp, I had so much fun with it that I know I want to be an engineer.”

Mariana Zaragoza, from Mexico, says: “I think there’s a really small number of people around the whole world who get to experience what we got to experience here.”
