5th graders Starbase IndianasThis year the 5th grade class had a very unique learning opportunity at STARBASE Indiana on the grounds of the Indiana Air National Guard base in Fort Wayne.

"STARBASE Indiana is a premier educational program, sponsored by the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Reserve Affairs. At STARBASE Indiana students participate in challenging "hands-on, minds-on" activities in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). They interact with STEM professionals to explore careers and observe STEM applications in the real world. The program encourages students to set goals and achieve them." www.starbasein.org/5th graders Starbase Indiana 2

St. Paul's students were engaged through the inquiry-based curriculum with its "hands-on, mind-on" experiential activities. They studied Newton's Laws and Bernoulli's principle; explored nanotechnology, navigation and mapping. They were captivated by engineering as they used the computer to design space station components, then printed them out on the 3D printer. Math was embedded throughout the curriculum and students used metric measurement, estimation, calculation geometry and data analysis to solve questions. Teamwork was stressed as they worked together to explore, explain, elaborate and evaluate concepts.

St. Paul's students also learned to apply abstract principles to real world situations during tours led by teachers/guest speakers and lectures on the use of STEM in different settings and careers. Learn more about STARBASE 1.0 at: http://www.starbasein.org/starbase-1.0.html. 

One St. Paul parent that attended STARBASE with the students was "thoroughly ... impressed and pleased" with the experience. " It far exceeded our expectations. The quality -- and quantity -- of thorough, very educational, inter-disciplinary, and inspiring activities the students experienced and participated in was outstanding. Physics, chemistry, math, geography, earth science, biology, engineering, and robotics were all part of this great week. To call this a field trip is an understatement - this was an auxiliary math and science center (along with fire trucks and fighter jets!) that our students got to enroll in for a week."

Students at St.Paul's can take part in the Student Life Organization - which consists of a small group of students from the 7th and 8th grade classes that organize and take part in special projects.  The Student Life Organization was designed to (1) hone leadership skills, (2) mobile students, and (3) serve the community.  Special projects undertaken by the Student Life Organization in the past include: adopting a Christmas family, putting together baskets for downtown businesses to show support and organizing and providing input for student activities.
