Volunteer Opportunities

Shape the future. Volunteer.

Did you ever wonder why you had to learn math in school? STARBASE kids do, too. The cool thing is, now you know the answer! Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) are what the real world is made of. You know. Because you build it everyday.

Ever dream of being a rock star but know more about carbon fiber than guitar chords? At STARBASE Scientists are the stars! Our students are energized by seeing real world careers and meeting the people who live them.

We teach the science of rockets. But you don't have to be a rocket scientist to volunteer. From loading model rockets onto a launcher to participating in a Q & A session, STARBASE makes volunteering easy. We've thought through every volunteer scenario and developed resources to help you make the most of your valuable time.

Not sure what to say to a group? Our presentation outlines will guide you through. Don't think your field is relevant to kids? Our volunteer coordinator will help you connect the dots. And at every volunteer event there are STARBASE instructors at your side to make the experience as smooth and impactful as possible.


Our volunteers include:

  • parents
  • grandparents
  • teachers
  • older siblings
  • business professionals
  • your profession here...

Call Jeff Gabriel at 785.646.5730 or email jeff@kansasstarbase.org for more information.

Thank you for your support!

STARBASE Profiles

Tanner Kellogg

My name is Tanner Kellogg and I believe that attending DoD STARBASE when I was younger helped shape my life as well as the course of my education and career. I attended STARBASE Kansas at McConnell AFB in Wichita, Kansas. It was a one-week day camp during the summer of 2001, and I was nine years old. I had just finished 3rd grade at Woodland Health and Wellness Magnet Elementary School.
