Day 4: Rockets, space, and more learning

Day 4 of encampment is over and its hard to believe the week is half done! Today the cadets toured portions of Volk Field, learned more about aerospace, and continued to try and meet the standards required for graduation.

WBS students heard about the UW’s latest space science research being conducted at its Space Science and Engineering Center. They also learned about the Air Force’s global reach capabilities. Cadets toured Volk today as well and learned about how an Air Force career requires one to be drug-free.

CDC cadets continued to work on their model rocketry badges which requires constructing multiple rockets during the week. They also worked more on the skills they need to be a cadet NCO.

WCA cadet spent the morning on the Leadership Reaction Course, working in small groups on physical challenges. This is the hardest part of the week for WCA as candidates have to dig down and push themselves past their pre-conceived notions. The candidates also had a session where they received peer feedback from each other about what they need to improve on and what strengths they have.
