to attend STARBASE program
Thanks to a federally funded program, all 4th and 5th grade students at St John the Baptist School in Vermillion will be able to attend the science, technology, engineering and math-based STARBASE Minnesota Program in September. The full-day, week-long STEM program exclusively offered only to students in six Twin Cities school districts, will introduce many new, real-life science and engineering experiences to the St. John's students. St John's is pleased to participate in the program as a way to provide high-impact, differentiated learning experiences for its students.
"We have heard about this amazing program for several years and are grateful for the opportunity for our students to participate," said Sr. Navya, 4th grade teacher, "Our small class sizes and our eager parent volunteers make us a good candidate for attending STARBASE when a rare opening presents itself."

STARBASE is a non-profit organization that is provided free to school and is funded jointly through the Department of Defense (Minnesota National Guard) and several STEM corporations and foundations, including Delta Airlines, 3M Corporation and Toro Corporation. Students, who usually don't consider themselves to be interested or academically strong in science or math, graduate from this program with a renewed excitement about the subjects and the careers they discover during this program.

The Vermillion preschool through sixth grade school has a long history of science-based programming, including an after-school Science Club often taught by 3M wizard scientists, a family science night and an annual science fair, which includes participation in regional competition.
