Starbase is an engineering arts program that lines up perfectly with our Arts Integration at Centennial Elementary. Starting in November and continuing through the start of December, 5th graders will visit Gowen Field and engage in designing a starbase. Students will use the engineering design process to collaboratively explore solutions for the future.
Laura Bresson, 5th grade teacher, loves this program. She says, "
Students can't wait to begin this program. Said ___, "
