STARBASE-ATLANTIS ACADEMY - NEWPORT
440 Meyerkord Avenue
(Perry Hall Building 440 - room 012)
Newport, RI 02841
Hosted by Naval Station Newport and sponsored by the Department of Defense, STARBASE-Atlantis Academy is nurturing the next generation of scientists and engineers. Through innovative and challenging hands-on/minds-on lessons and activities, fifth grade students are immersed in engaging Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) related learning for a 25 hour learning experience over a period of five days. By encouraging students to become more involved with the STEM subjects early in their education, the DoD hopes to
inspire, develop, attract, and retain a pool of world-class STEM talent that will meet the Nation's current and future challenges.
In order to meet the STEM needs of the 21st Century the STARBASE program has added to its new curriculum which includes standards-based investigations and experiments in the following topic areas: Newton's Laws of Motion, Fluid Mechanics, Aerodynamics, conducting investigations into Matter, Physical and Chemical Reactions, Navigation and Mapping, Nanotechnology, Engineering and Design and STEM Careers. With the Engineering Design Process students learn to sketch, model and assemble using the ProENGINEER Creo Elements Computer-Aided Design program. This exciting curriculum encourages students to consider future STEM careers both in the military and/or in the civilian sectors.
The STARBASE-Atlantis partnership with NAVSTA Newport not only exposes children to the real-world applications of math and science but, it also offers students opportunities for interaction with military and DoD personnel who volunteer in our program. Our students benefit greatly from the positive role models in a military environment where respect, discipline, and teamwork are the norm. The STARBASE-Atlantis faculty and staff are proud to be a part of this dynamic partnership working together toward greater STEM literacy and ultimately greater national security.
