The 92nd Communications Squadron recently held a STEM event, the first of its kind, where they partnered with Greater Spokane Incorporated to bring different Spokane area high school students to come visit February 8th, 2018.
This event aimed to give students a prospective about how important the communications squadron is to the military mission. This type of experience helps bridge the gap between education, industry and the military.
“It’s good to open up the Air Force to the next generation of youth that might be joining and show them the different opportunities in technology that the Air Force offers,” said Senior Airman Johnny Mitchell, 92nd CS infrastructure technician. “We pull the curtain down and show them a lot of opportunities. We have a lot of technology jobs that can take them far in life with the skills that they would learn.”
The event included two main parts, the first part included a briefing on Air Force communications and a tour of the 92nd CS building. The second part was a hands-on exercise where students got to work with communication equipment.
“Overall, the event is a positive way to foster community relationships,” said 1st Lt. Michael Brittan. “It allows the community to learn what we do here, gain insight about our mission and see we are people just like them.”
