Héctor Barreto/Honeywell Dylan Davidson and Arielle Placek of Goose Creek High, and Nathan Miller (pictured) of Stratford High recently attended the two-week Honeywell Leadership Challenge Academy at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Alabama.


Three Berkeley County students were selected for a two-week leadership and science camp at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Alabama.

Dylan Davidson and Arielle Placek of Goose Creek High, and Nathan Miller of Stratford High went to the Honeywell Leadership Challenge Academy, which began Feb. 21.

The students are among 304 students from 38 countries and 33 U.S. states and territories in attendance.

The academy uses interactive technology, science-oriented workshops and team exercises to teach children of Honeywell employees between the ages of 16-18 leadership skills in science, technology, engineering, and math.

Students engaged in team-building challenges such as designing, building and testing their own rockets; participating in simulated astronaut training, shuttle missions and a moonwalk; and conducting DNA extraction experiments on fruit. See more photos on Page 6A.
