STARBASE seeks to raise the interest and improve the knowledge and skills of at-risk youth in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, which will provide for a highly educated and skilled American workforce.
STARBASE is a five day STEM-based academy in which students collaborate to explore various fields of science and mathematics. The students use the Scientific Method to conduct experiments in chemistry and physics, make observations, and analyze data through graphing and comparison to draw conclusions about the world in which they live. They also make use of technology in the form of a high profile CAD program and 3-D printing. Students are challenged to utilize the knowledge they gain to engineer unique solutions to real world issues.
STARBASE has now expanded into the schools as part of after-school mentoring programs with STEM topics. This STARBASE 2.0 portion, includes topics such as robotics and chemistry as is the "next step" for STARBASE graduates.
