Leadership labs allow cadets to hone their skills in the art of leadership and the science of warfare. They occur from 0600-0800 on Friday morning, and take place in many locations depending on the theme of the lab but are usually within the old gymnasium or at a local park. During lab cadets are taught basic soldiering skills, such as first aid and movement techniques along with many other essential skills. Cadets who are upperclassman are given opportunities to teach underclassmen some of these necessary skills and tactics. Cadets are often put into a squad leader role and must learn how to accomplish a mission quickly and effectively. Following their mission they are assessed by a grader and given feedback on what dimensions of their leadership they can potentially change or improve.
