We know the best way for students to learn more about STEM is through interactive activities. We also see value in sharing with parents and students information and real people stories about their STEM careers. Check back soon as we will have career highlights from our STARBASE Partners and others who have STEM related positions. This is an exciting way to start thinking about a career in fields such as engineering, technology, or environmental stewardship.
Getting familiar with STEM Careers is important at the elementary school level. That’s why STARBASE Victory starts as early as 3rd grade for our summer camps and 4th grade during the school year. We hope you visit the Virginia Career View website soon as there is so much information here to help parents and students start thinking about the future!
