Hedaayah Abdol, Teacher participating at STARBASE Jackson Barracks

Our students' experience at STARBASE had a profound impact on the way they feel about science. The hands-on activities gave them a new perspective of how science worked. It developed a spirit of teamwork which filtered back into the classroom thereafter. It also helped the students to think really critical in certain situations which served as a great introduction to the expectation for the new common core curriculum which we are fully transitioning to this year. The experience our students had is one I hope will be available to all our upcoming fifth graders in the future. Thank you for helping us pursue our mission for developing college-bound students for leadership and lifelong learning.
