Nellis’ Space Force professionals assigned to the 328th Weapons Squadron will virtually launch five DeSTEMber events to celebrate the U.S. Space Force’s first birthday, Dec. 15-17.

The intention behind DeSTEMber is for students in grades 3-6 to connect with U.S. Space Force professionals and get the students excited about the potential of a STEM education with the possibility of being a part of the space program one day.

Dec. 15, 5:30-6:30 a.m.: Endeavour Elementary (NJ); 1st and 2nd Grades (200 Students)
