Cadet Cyber & STEM Badges

Posted on August 20, 2018 at 12:00 PM by Curt LaFond

Introducing the Cadet Cyber Badge and Cadet STEM Badge. These new recognition programs will motivate cadets to participate in activities like Cyber Patriot, robotics, astronomy, meteorology, drones / UAVs, flight simulators, and more.

For years, the Cadet Model Rocketry Badge has given cadets an incentive to learn about the science behind rockets. For tens of thousands of cadets, the badge motivated them to explore a subject that they might not have given a try were it not for the badge. Now, that same principle is at work for our cyber defense activities and several STEM-related subject areas.

For details, see the new CAPP 60-41, Cadet Cyber & STEM Recognition Programs. Badges are available for purchase beginning 22 August at the Vanguard store at the CAP National Conference.





Personally, I believe this is a wonderful way to incentivize the cadets who focus on STEM and cyber fields. I honestly wish I had this as a cadet, but now I am advocating for it since it is important to recognize the hardwork they put into learning complex cyber modules typically needed for CyberPatriot. Civil Air Patrol made me the man I am today and CyberPatriot helped guide me towards my technology career.

This is fantastic. What a great way to incentivize and recognize the importance of these aerospace activities for our cadets. Is there an estimated date for when these badges will be available on Vanguard's web site?
