This workshop will highlight EOD occupational requirements and various capabilities and mission parameters. High school students will view a video detailing USAF EOD, taught and perform various mathematical equations related to the EOD profession, and be provided a hands-on opportunity to experience various tools, protective equipment, and robotics assets.
The Air Force will have EOD-qualified military members who are the only designated and authorized personnel within the Air Force that are organized, trained and equipped to analyze, mitigate and defeat threats from hazardous explosive ordnance (EO) and criminal/terrorist Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). EOD teams also confirm, identify, evaluate, render safe and dispose of EO hazards presented from incidents and accidents, including evidence protection in support of criminal and mishap investigations. To ensure Air Force EOD capability, all EOD units will organize, train and equip to conduct or support the following areas: Aerospace Systems/Vehicles and Conventional Munitions, Counter-IED, Combating Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD), Nuclear Weapons Response, Unexploded Ordnance Recovery Operations (UXO), Operational Range Clearance, Defense Support to Civil Authorities, Irregular Warfare, and Very Important Personnel Protective Support.
This workshop is designed specifically for high school students.
