NELLIS AIR FORCE BASE, Nev. — STARBASE Nellis will hold a new class from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. 30 July to 2 Aug. here at Nellis Air Force Base, Nev.

STARBASE — Science and Technology Academies Reinforcing Basic Aviation and Space Exploration — Nellis is Nevada’s first STARBASE academy. With a staff of four teachers and administrators, as well as assistance from base volunteers, the program is postured to instruct up to 1,300 students from the Las Vegas valley annually.

STARBASE Nellis began April 2012 under the stewardship of the 926th Group, a U.S. Air Force Reserve tenant unit also located on Nellis AFB.

STARBASE is a Department of Defense program developed to raise the interest and improve the knowledge of at-risk youth in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). STARBASE is leading toward a skilled American workforce that can meet the advanced technological requirements of the nation.

STARBASE provides 20-25 hours of instruction using a common core curriculum in line with national standards. Students participate in challenging “hands-on, mind-on” activities studying Newton’s Laws and Bernoulli’s principle; exploring nanotechnology, navigation and mapping; using computer software to design space stations, all-terrain vehicles and submersibles; and using metric measurement, estimation, calculation geometry and data analysis to solve equations. Additionally, the students interact with military personnel to observe STEM applications and explore career choices.

Today STARBASE has 76 academies in 40 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. Approximately 700,000 students have participated in the program since its inception.
