Local student graduates from Aviation Challenge
Noah Smith of Glenwood Springs recently attended Aviation Challenge Mach II at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center, home of Space Camp, Space Camp Robotics, Aviation Challenge, U.S. Cyber Camp and NASA Marshall Space Flight Center’s Official Visitor Center.
The weeklong educational program promotes science, technology, engineering and math (STEM), while training students and with hands-on activities and missions based on teamwork, leadership and problem solving.
This program is specifically designed for students who have an interest in military aviation and the mechanics of flight. Students learn principles of aviation and put their knowledge to the test in a variety of flight simulators. Taking the role of fighter pilots, Noah and team ran control systems and scenario-based missions as well as trained in water and land survival. At the end of the week, Noah and crew returned in time to graduate with honors.
