Emma Shannon Exploring Space Technology in the USA


Year 12 student, Emma Shannon, represented Australia at the Honeywell Leadership Challenge Academy in the US, in March.

“The Honeywell Leadership Challenge Academy, in conjunction with the US Space and Rocket Centre, presented a unique opportunity to build and hone our leadership skills by tackling real-world challenges in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Through simulations, team challenges and leadership based activities, along with many exciting keynote speakers (including a real astronaut!), we developed a better understanding of space, robotics, aerospace science with a heavy focus on leadership. This experience has allowed me to grow as a person and will definitely stay with me for life."
