AG visits Winchester STARBASE Academy

Brig. Gen. Timothy P. Williams, the Adjutant General of Virginia, visits students from John Kerr Elementary School taking part in activities at the Winchester STARBASE Academy Sept. 19, 2014, at the Cherry-Beasley Readiness Center in Winchester, Va. Hands-on activities for the day included completing an electrical circuit, programing robots and structural engineering. In the last year, STARBASE has conducted 28 classes for 13 different schools in five area school districts for more than 520 students. Science and Technology Academies Reinforcing Basic Aviation and Space Exploration, or STARBASE, is a Department of Defense educational program, sponsored by the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Reserve Affairs where students participate in challenging activities in science, technology, engineering and math. Students are immersed in a unique classroom experience for five days where all activities are student-centered, hands-on, encourage higher order thinking and incorporate STEM applications in the real world.
