Honeywell Sponsors 26 Indians Space Camp In AL

HUNTSVILLE, AL (IANS) – Consumer technology company Honeywell India on December 14 said that it brought 26 Indian students to the US Space & Rocket Center for its 13th annual space camp.

The selected students from Indian cities, including Bengaluru, Pune, Hyderabad, and Madurai, were part of the group that had students from 45 countries and 29 US states and territories, including children of Honeywell employees and students from Charlotte Mecklenburg County Schools who were part of the college readiness program at non-profit Carolina Youth Coalition.

The company hosted 237 students at the USSRC here, for the annual Honeywell Leadership Challenge Academy.

The two weeklong programs encourage high school students ages 16 through 18 to pursue science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) careers through hands-on activities in coding, computer science, leadership and communication skills, and astronautics, the company said.

Since the program was founded in 2010, Honeywell has sponsored more than 3,000 students to attend Space Camp.

Students are chosen after a rigorous application and review process that considers academic achievement and community involvement.

Honeywell and its employees contribute to the scholarships, which cover tuition, meals, lodging, and program materials.
