Breslau, Canada (SPX) Apr 23, 2013

More than 300 young people participate each year in the Cadet Youth Development Centre's programming. The centre's aerospace facility is the only cadet facility of its kind in Canada.

Lockheed Martin has provided a visual simulation platform that creates training scenarios across aviation, maritime and ground domains to Breslau's Cadet Youth Development Centre.

The Prepar3D simulation platform will encourage youth to explore science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) through an immersive learning environment.

The Cadet Youth Development Centre is home to the 822 Tutor Squadron of the Royal Canadian Air Cadets. As a registered charity, the centre offers free access to aerospace and robotics programs for cadets and youth aged 12-18 years.

Its Introduction to Aerospace Through Simulation program engages participants in aviation-based tasks where they build teamwork, leadership and resource management skills while experiencing STEM principles in action.

"When our cadets get in the simulators, they are entirely attuned to the task and to their teammates," said Lt. Col. Ronald Gowing (Ret.), founder and program director of the Cadet Youth Development Centre. "The simulation program empowers youth to take control of their futures by cultivating self-assurance that they can excel in math and the sciences."

"Simulation technology provides boundless opportunity for engaging youth in learning about STEM disciplines, and we are honored to support the Cadet Youth Development Centre in that mission," said Jon Rambeau, vice president of Lockheed Martin Training and Logistics Solutions. "Many of our own employees have pursued technical careers because of encouragement and experiences they had during their youth."

More than 300 young people participate each year in the Cadet Youth Development Centre's programming. The centre's aerospace facility is the only cadet facility of its kind in Canada. Additional community aviation and aerospace programs are made available to local schools, scouts, guides and other youth-oriented organizations.

Powered by game-based technology, Prepar3D presents a virtual reality platform that supports immersive learning scenarios from deep underwater to suborbital space. Military and civilian professionals currently train with Prepar3D individually and collectively during distributed training exercises.

San Francisco (AFP) March 26, 2013
A new edition of the dystopian "BioShock" shooter videogame released Tuesday puts Americanism in the crosshairs, taking on taboo topics including slavery and racism. The "BioShock Infinite" protagonist battles a cult devoted to US founding fathers in a fictional floating city of Columbia that clings to early 1900s Americana and shuns the notion of an Emancipation Proclamation.
