Student teams plan and mount a simulated aid mission to provide supplies and prevent a possible disease outbreak in an area devastated by a major typhoon. Using borrowed military cargo aircraft, they determine what aid supplies are needed, create a load manifest matching the capacity of the aircraft, and plot the route the plane will take to deliver the supplies. Critical to providing useful aid, teams have to learn about the infectious diseases that have occurred (or might occur) as a result of the disaster to determine what the survivors really need.
