WAVE

WAVE is Webber Aerospace Ventures in Education. WAVE is Webber’s oldest-running club dating back to the first Mission in 1992. Modelled on NASA, student participants prepare for and complete a simulated space mission each Semester. Currently, Missions visit the Moon or Mars. Students will have an opportunity to join a number of Teams specializing in Life, Water, Geology, Journalism, Systems Engineering, Hospitality and Security, Satellite Engineering, and other fields. This club is almost entirely student-run, and supported by a strong alumni network. All Webber Panthers are welcome to join, and there is always a team which fits the interests of the student.

Students who sign up for the first time do so at the “Mission Specialist” level. There are no interviews or applications required. Once a student has completed one Mission, they become eligible for positions of greater leadership. Leadership positions, including Team Commander, Team Project Manager, Astronaut, Flight Director and Mission Director, are “unlocked” based on numbers of Missions completed and at which position. All students applying for a Project Manager, Astronaut or Director position, will need to sign up for an interview. An interview schedule will be set at an initial informational meeting at the beginning of each semester. If a student misses the initial sign up and is interested in becoming part of the WAVE Leadership Team, they should see Mr. Schroeder. Students may combine after-school activities such as Sports and Academic clubs and still participate in Wave

WAVE meets every Tuesday from 2:55-4:00 in the Tech Room (E01). There is a $40 fee associated with participation.
