Starbase Academy Opens at Nellis Air Force Base

 

A partnership between the Clark County School District and Nellis Air Force Base was unveiled Wednesday. It is called Starbase Academy.

The program focuses on teaching kids science, technology, engineering and mathematics. It is supported by a grant and is open to all Clark County schools. The program includes class work, hands-on projects and cooperation with base employees. Students get a chance to see how people in the Air Force use science, technology, engineering and math in the real world.

Superintendent Dwight Jones, 926 Group Commander Colonel John Breeden, and 99th Air Base Vice Wing Commander Carol Yannarella were all part of the ribbon cutting at the base.
