2018 Summer Academies

Launching rockets, programming robots, and designing on CAD are just a few of the activities students will experience during STARBASE summer academies. Students will be building skills in observation, investigation, science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), as well as gaining confidence while working in a team setting.

There is no fee for our academies, but we do depend upon donations to fund our summer programs.  Please consider donating to support your student's adventure.

PLEASE READ THE NOTE BELOW BEFORE REGISTERING

Since the demand for summer academies has been so strong, students will be limited to one academy per summer.  Check below to ensure your choice of academies is open before completing the enrollment form.  Each site has specific restrictions regarding enrollment.  Be sure to read the 'fine print' before enrolling.

Please check the schedule regularly for those summer academies that might be full. 

Teachers who attend five-day academies as Flight Leaders are eligible for college graduate credits through Friends University and Baker University.  You are not required to have a child in the academy to enroll in the gradutate program.  . Please contact Karen@kansasSTARBASE.org for more information.
