711th Human Performance Wing

12/6/2012 - WRIGHT-PATTERSON AIR FORCE BASE, Ohio -- The Interservice/Industry Training, Simulation, and Education Conference, or I/ITSEC, is taking place in Orlando, Florida this week. The conference promotes cooperation between the Armed Services, industry, academia, and other government agencies to improve training and education programs for modeling and simulation (M&S). The 711th Human Performance Wing (711 HPW) has several members from across its mission units representing the Wing at I/ITSEC this week. And at the conference's Executive Dinner and Awards Ceremony on December 4th, the 711 HPW representatives brought home three of the seven awards.

Firstly, Ms. Kim Puckett of Dayton Tri-Village High School was given the "Individual Award" for her efforts to promote modeling and simulation (M&S) in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) schools in the Dayton Area. Ms. Puckett worked closely with the 711 HPW Human Effectiveness Directorate's Gaming Research Integration for Learning Lab to write an M&S course for Dayton area high school students. Through collaboration with the 711 HPW and the Dayton Regional STEM Center, the group created a Dayton Regional M&S Competition, which was held in September for students of Dayton STEM schools.

Secondly, the C-STARS unit, a division of 711 HPW U.S. Air Force School of Aerospace Medicine (USAFSAM), along with the Division of Trauma and Critical Care Medicine at the University of Cincinnati Hospital, was awarded the Team Training Award. The C-STARS and University of Cincinnati hospital team was recognized for its simulation training program for the Critical Care Air Transport Team located at USAFSAM at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.

The C-STARS unit brought home the third award of the evening--the coveted Governor's Award--a top commendation of the I/ITSEC Executive Dinner and Awards Ceremony.

Congratulations to the award winners and all those representing the 711 HPW at I/ITSEC!
