STARBASE is more than a fieldtrip. It's an interactive experience.
We inspire creativity and hands-on learning with features you won't find in any other classroom. This learning takes place in a location students really want to come to where they will experience climbing on a Black Hawk Helicopter, touring a KC-135 Refueling Aircraft, Engine Shops and HET Vehicles.
Powerful activities like:
- rocket launches,
- EV3 Robotics,
- and 3D CAD design
let students engage with content in interactive ways, find new interests, and access the world of STEM like never before.
Using active learning instructional strategies, students become directly involved in the educational process which maximizes their understanding and learning. Hands-on experiments have students:
- launching Alka-seltzer rockets,
- navigating with GPS devices,
- analyzing chemicals,
- soaring through the atmosphere with flight simulator,
- and solving engineering feats using the EDP process.
