Our STARBASE engineers have worked hard all week. Launch Ceremonies, formerly known as graduation, provide a chance to reflect on the students’ accomplishments and look to the future. As the Launch Ceremony Q&A volunteer, you will engage with a group of students in a guided Q&A session for 20-30 minutes. A STARBASE instructor acts as the MC and you are the special guest!
After their week at STARBASE, our students go back to school to continue their learning. The 2.0 Mentoring program was created to stay connected with students and support their interest in science, technology, engineering and math. As a mentor, you will join other volunteers at a local school and interact with students during a 1-2 hour block of time. The 2.0 mentoring program is typically scheduled weekly.
You know about the C-130 aircraft because you work with it every day. C-130 tours are a great time to share your knowledge with students and their families. These 30-40 minute tours take place in the summer and give you the opportunity to share about the aircraft and the mission of the MN Air National Guard.
The 133rd Airlift Wing Maintenance Group is responsible for the maintenance of eight C-130 aircraft. Master Sergeant Nicholas Gray shares how his team helps fix the C-130s, specifically the Rolls-Royce T56 engines and the Allison T56 propellers on the aircrafts. Learn how MSgt Gray uses STEM in his job every day and explains the different parts of the C-130.
