STARBASE 2.0 is an afterschool mentoring program sponsored by the West Virginia STARBASE Academy, a Department of Defense youth program hosted by the 130th Airlift Wing in Charleston. The vision of STARBASE is to raise the interest and improve knowledge and skills of at-risk youth in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, providing for a highly skilled and educated American workforce.
STARBASE 2.0 combines STEM activities with a relationship-rich, school-based environment to provide the missing link for children making the transition from elementary to middle school.
