The Voyager Club's Scorpio Squadron: Round Two of the 2016 Long Duration Mission - No Problem.
The second round of the 2016 LDM is off to a great start. And, with much fanfare and bravado, the Scorpio Squadron was first out of the gate at 7:45 A.M. Cooper was the captain and, according to Supercoach Brittney, did "an entirely adequate job!" (I may have misheard the word adequate. Perhaps awesome was her correct word choice).
Normally I observe and take copious notes on the bridge - carefully recording the number of steps taken by each cadet, the amount of pencil lead used, the length of explanations, the depth of sighs etc. Today was different. This morning I worked alongside Superflightdirector Connor as his second chair wingman. Oh....... now I remember where I heard the word adequate. It wasn't Cooper, it was Connor's answer to a question about my competency. Nevermind.
It was enjoyable interacting with the Scorpio cadets from the control room side. They're a funny, energetic, precocious, group of teens who surely don't need us to entertain them.
Well done Scorpio. You're a credit to your school and our club!
Another excellent example of the great work our friends at Dream Flight Adventures are doing with their simulators and classes in Pennsylvania. Operation Rx is experiential education at its best. This is a post on the new simulation from Dream Flight's blog. The IKS Highlander is located at J E Harrison Middle School in the Baldwin-Whitehall School District, Pennsylvania.
