Two children of Kansas City Plant employees were among 300 students from 38 countries selected to attend the Honeywell Leadership Challenge Academy.
Moe McClarren, daughter of Honeywell Analyst Marcia McClarren, and Michael Sebelski, son of Honeywell Engineers Brian and Sheryl Sebelski attended the week-long academy in March. This unique scholarship program uses interactive technology and science-oriented workshops and team exercises to teach students leadership skills in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
Held at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama, the program engages students in team-building challenges such as building their own rockets and participating in simulated astronaut training, shuttle missions and a moon walk. Students also meet scientists, engineers, and former astronauts, who help reinforce core leadership competencies and share their first-hand experience.
