STARBASE is 25 hours of “hands-on, minds-on” learning. Students attend for five days utilizing SMART classroom technology promoting an environment that engages students with hi-tech, alternative, discovery and inquiry based learning. Students study Newton's Laws and Bernoulli's principle; explore nanotechnology, navigation and mapping. They are captivated by engineering as they use the computer to design all-terrain vehicles. Math is embedded throughout the curriculum and students use metric measurement, estimation, calculation geometry and data analysis to solve questions. Teamwork is stressed as they work together to explore, explain, elaborate and evaluate concepts.
It is more than a field trip. It’s an interactive experience!
