For the first time ever, kids at Nett Lake Elementary were able to go on a mission to mars, at STARBASE Minnesota-Duluth.

They came down with the students from North Woods. And a financial boost for the transportation came from the East Range School to Work/Tech Prep Partnership.

Students and staff were really excited to be trying something so innovative and different from the traditional classroom.

Part of the mission of STARBASE is to be accessible for all students, including those who may be under-represented in STEM fields.

It's a Department of Defense program at the 148th Fighter Wing, and has been around since 2017. It's free and open to all northeastern Minnesota 5th graders.
