In February 2014, Bergvliet High student Leah Michaels in Grade 11, attended the Honeywell Leaderships Challenge Academy at the U.S. Space & Rocket Centre in Huntsville Alabama, U.S.A.
“I was part of a prestigious group of students from 30 countries and 26 U.S. states and territories. I completed a 45-hour training course involving principles of space exploration, science and maths as applied to the US Space Program to learn Leadership Skills in science, technology, engineering and math.
The core competencies of the program consisted of the following five categories:
We participated in the following activities to recognize the five concepts as tools and to utilize these tools to affect change and achieve a desired end, by participating in the following challenges.
We received lectures from NASA Scientist, Astronauts and Engineers.
As a graduate of the US Space Camp I am now: “A Leader that knows the way, goes the way, and shows the way”, in the words of author, speaker and pastor John C. Maxwell.
My participation was made possible by the kind and generous sponsorship of Lwandle Technologies”.
