By leveraging its national infrastructure and engaging its highly-skilled military personnel with our national treasure–our youth, DoD STARBASE exposes children to exciting real-world applications of science and math.
Fiscal Year 2012 was a year of moving forward for the DoD STARBASE Program. This valued and relevant DoD outreach program is helping to build and enlarge a diverse pool of potential innovative workers needed to support the DoD workforce consisting of civilian and military personnel.

By opening young minds through this tremendous educational program, our nation will no doubt make great strides in the years to come. My experience with this program has been extremely positive, and I am encouraged by the enthusiasm I see.
