NELLIS AIR FORCE BASE, Nev. -- Students from Neal Elementary School watch STARBASE NELLIS director, Myles Judd, conduct the Eggbert experiment here Jan. 8. In the experiment, students construct a safety harness for an egg that allows it to safely fly down a cable with the goal of protecting the egg at the end of the flight. Students had a budget for how much they could spend on the raw materials for the safety harness. STARBASE is a Department of Defense educational program, sponsored by the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Reserve Affairs where students participate in science, technology, engineering and math activities. Students are immersed in a unique classroom experience for five days where all activities are student-centered, hands-on, encourage higher-order thinking and incorporate STEM applications in the real world.
