"Engineers build the world around us. At STARBASE we build engineers."
Since its inception in 1992, Kansas STARBASE has worked with over 74,000 students to increase their knowledge and create an interest in the areas of science, technology, engineering or math. Along with the academic focus, the STARBASE program is instilling a sense of pride and personal accomplishment in those students who have attended an academy. It is those traits by which STARBASE will increase the number of students going into science, technology, engineering and math areas once they have completed their secondary education. In other words, STARBASE is increasing the pool of highly motivated, technically minded employees and citizens.
Some of our students think they come to build rockets, explore airplanes and drive rovers. We know they are also building skills in observation, investigation, science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Not to mention confidence.
They come as kids. They leave as engineers.
Summer academies are available to students who have completed 4th, 5th or 6th grade. NO EXCEPTIONS! Wichita, Topeka, Salina, Kansas City, Manhattan and Hays are five-day academies.
2018 Information coming soon.
