U.S. Air Force Academy


Center for Leadership and Character Development Interactives

The Project

Develop an education and research center in the new Polaris Hall that facilitates the Air Force Academy's mission to promote cadet character and leadership.

Our Role

Silver Oaks teamed up with the Academy to produce two computer-based touchscreen interactives that are housed in the Center to serve as resources to the cadets.

"Distinguished Graduates" allows cadets to search a database of Distinguished Graduates, as well as Congressional Medal of Honor and Air Force Cross recipients. Searching by name, award/recognition, squadron, award year or graduation year, the user can view a bio and images/video to learn about the recipient's accomplishments.

"Cadet Character and Leadership" provides cadets with the unique opportunity to hear former cadets reflect on their USAFA experience – specifically speaking to USAFA core values, excellence in practice and USAFA life. Through a series of sorting filters, users are able to drill down to topic-specific videos.
