STARBASE is a DOD-sponsored activity hosted by the Air National Guard at McEntire Joint National Guard Base. STARBASE students (fifth graders) participate in an inquiry-based curriculum with “hands-on/minds-on” experiential activities in the fields of science, math, technology, and engineering. They will have an opportunity to see how these academic areas are important as they interact through on-base excursions to various work centers on McEntire JNGB. Teamwork is a constant theme as students work together to explore, explain, elaborate and evaluate concepts. We strive to make sure we cover many of the 5th grade science and math state standards in our 25 hours of instruction.
