Please give me a call. I am the Director of STARBASE Savannah and would love to have your 5th grade students participate in this STEM program. It is located on HAAF. Monday-Friday from 9:30 until 2pm. You must have your own transportation. The only requirements for the students are to have a home/school lunch and a jacket. Please call at 315-3748. We had a cancellation for the first two weeks in May: May 5-9 and 12-16. Thank you very much...
