The program introduces students to the legacy of the American Space Program and concentrates on addressing current issues within the science and technology community.
During the academy, the students, working in small groups, will be presented with “Challenges” and encouraged to explore problem-solving scenarios using hands-on science, mathematics, and engineering skills. Many of the activities at HLCA will require students to present their findings or opinions to a panel of experts in the field.
HLCA participants learn teamwork and communication in ways that are not easily replicated in the formal classroom. By participating in the program, students learn how to work through scientific problems through incremental tests and experiments.
