Mississippi Missy Posted August 9, 2008 Share Posted August 9, 2008 Hi everyone, this is actually my first post to make. I have replied to 37 but haven't written any till now. How fun. Now I found those smiley faces. ha ha Any ways, to get to my post. My DS was involved in a program this week called "Starbase Atlantis." It is for 5th and 6th graders. They go everyday for a week all day. They get 25 hours of Science and Math. They do the most awesome things with your kids, they did here anyhow. Here is just a few to mention, science projects Norton laws, learning on motion and air, riding on a hovercraft, learning to fly (flight simulators), and making and launching a relaunchable rocket that they get to keep. They did so much more, but this is what first comes to mind. It was so good. I recommend anyone interested to look for Navy bases in your area that may be offering this program. I was told by the instructors that there is over 60 of these Starbase programs in our country. Also, my DS attended this with and through our home school group. They may only do it by group settings. There was 27 kids that went this last week with my DS. They do the group setting so the kids can make new friends and learn to work together (team work). Check it out. It is a neat program. :D Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
